During this period, any bus entering Granville Island any day of the week up to 6pm is required to purchase a Day Permit in order to drop off and pick up passengers on the site. We respectively ask bus drivers to try to avoid taking up valuable parking spaces from in front of local businesses or blocking visibility to store fronts off the Island. 

During the summer season (May 1 – September 30) after 6pm and during the winter season (October 1 – April 30) at all times, parking is available for $10/hour at the outdoor lot on Cartwright Street beside Performance Works. Note that this parking is only available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved in advance. The outside bus lane is reserved for pick-up/drop-off and stopped buses will be required to move after 15 minutes. No other pick-up and drop-off is permitted outside of the designated bus lane(s) without prior approval from CMHC.
