On October 29, 2011 CBC Radio's White Coat, Black Art ran an episode called Park Your Frustration.  It dealt with various aspects of hospital parking, from not providing enough spaces, to the exorbitant cost, to people parking - illegally - on side streets.  Click here to LISTEN to the podcast or you can click here to VIEW a transcript of the program.  Based on this program, the DLCVA contacted the HRRH to inquire about their parking.  We rec'd the following response:"Parking at the new facility was approved by North York Community Council and the City of Toronto at 2,025 spaces for the hospital . It was not based on bed count but rather by  traffic consultant report by the hospital and another one by the City of Toronto Planning Department that takes into consideration a number of factors, including traffic demand management strategies.  In addition to the parking on the hospital site, there will be a shared parking strategy with the other offices on the campus who at the present time have vacant capacity."

"There will also be metered parking on the streets that are on the campus. This parking will be run by the City Of Toronto.

The City of Toronto Parking Enforcement office is the only group that can deal with parking on city streets. HRRH must respect this and has no enforcement rights on public roads."
