HST causes parking rate increase at CNC
Parking rates will be going up at the College of New Caledonia September 1 because of the HST. The daily meter rates will increase 25 cents to $2.25 for a pass that lasts all day until midnight.
“We encourage students to give themselves a few extra minutes for parking on the first day of school, Sept. 7,” said CNC communications manager Randall Heidt. “We have created a new parking lot located next to residence, which makes up for the spots lost during the construction of the TEC building.”
Monthly rates for students and employees are $35 + HST or $39.20. Monthly passes are valid 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Monthly passes are available at a discounted rate of $32 + HST or $35.85 if ordered online at www.cnc.bc.ca Short term meter rates are 25 cents per hour.
Parking at CNC is operated by Impark, which offers free help to its customers with flat tires, dead batteries or keys locked in vehicles. Call 1-877-771-PETE (7383) for free help.
