City of London launches new promo code for accessing two hours of complimentary parking in the Core Area for remainder of 2021

To help support businesses in the Core Area over the coming months, the City is launching a new promotional code to access two hours of complimentary parking through the HonkMobile app.

The Core Area includes downtown, Richmond Row, and Old East Village. This area also encompasses most of the Old East Village and London Downtown Business Improvement Areas (BIA).

Motorists visiting the Core Area can access the offer by entering the promotional code ‘CORE’ from a phone, tablet or computer. Anyone not able to use the HonkMobile app can also phone Parking Services at 519-661-4537 to arrange the discount. The code is valid for both on-street and municipal parking lots, and is not valid for privately managed parking lots.

The City’s previous promotional code, ‘B2B20’, was launched as a short-term pandemic support measure in the summer of 2020 and has been retired after being used by visitors over 50,000 times to access complimentary parking. The new ‘CORE’ promotional code will be available until December 31, 2021.

“We’ve heard from businesses that this parking promotion has been a useful support during the pandemic, and as we look ahead to brighter days when we can welcome more visitors to the core, the City remains committed to providing flexible and responsive support for business needs,” said Jim Yanchula, Manager, Core Area and Urban Regeneration. 

Motorists visiting the Core Area can also take advantage of free one-hour parking on Dundas Place, with no payment or promotional code required, or use any of the 18 new short-term parking spots that have been added downtown to provide clear and convenient locations for customers and food delivery drivers making curb-side deliveries and pick-ups.
