Parking & Transit
Free daytime parking in most spots on Granville Island is limited to three hours from 7 am to 7 pm. Read the signs carefully: some spots are for one hour or less. Don’t park your car in one spot for three hours and then move it to another spot, you risk being ticketed. Parking is free and unlimited in most spots (including the pay parking garages and lots) each evening from 7 pm to 7 am.
The parking lot just east of the entrance to Granville Island at the corner of Lamey’s Mill Road and The Castings offers all-day parking for $8. There is also plenty of parking on the north side of False Creek. Consider leaving your car there and coming across on the ferries.
The most important thing to remember is to give yourself time—at least an extra 15 minutes to find a spot—if you plan to park on Granville Island.
Ferries travel from various locations along the north and south shores of False Creek to Granville Island at frequent intervals. Call or check the web for schedule information.
