Many people perceive Whyte Avenue to have a parking problem. This extends to a company finding parking for it’s employees and potential customers who might be deterred and decide to go elsewhere.
With over 600 businesses in Old Strathcona and an estimated 77,000 people1 living within a 3 kilometer radius, it’s easy to see why people might thing there’s a parking issue. To combat this, the Old Strathcona Business Association put together an interactive map that allows for real-time viewing of all parking options in the area.
The link to the map can be found here and we also put together a static version as follows:
Whyte Avenue also has some of the best transit service in the city, giving additional options to employees and customers that prefer to avoid the traffic. Edmonton Transit System has a very useful website which allows a user to enter their address and destination to derive the optimal plan of getting there. Visit the ETS Trip Planner here.
Parking in Whyte Ave is undeniably more challenging than areas in the suburbs but that stems from the vibrant, cultural and historic feel that has made the area such a success for many decades. Ultimately, there are numerous parking options available if you know where to look.
