Parking at Baycrest

In accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Health Guidelines, Baycrest charges a fee for parking.  Our parking rates are consistent with fees charged at other GTA hospitals.

Our main parking lot is an automated park and pay system. Visitors can use the system to purchase parking at a daily flat rate of $14 or at a monthly rate of $80.

All other parking areas, including the lot in front of the Kimel Family Building, are metered at a cost of $7 per hour.

Should you encounter any issue with the automated system, please report it to the Security desk located at the Bathurst Street entrances.

Please observe parking signage and park only in designated areas.

Vehicles that are improperly parked or do not show proof of payment for parking are subject to receiving a Parking Invoice.  Parking enforcement is conducted by Precise-Parklink.

Revenue received from parking is used to offset maintenance, snow removal, grounds maintenance, paving, line painting, signage, CCTV system and lighting.
