The City of Whitehorse strives to create parking and curbside spaces to support a vibrant city and an accessible, safe, and sustainable transportation network for all road users.
The City manages:
- On-street parking management, and curbside regulations.
- Enforcement of non-moving vehicular traffic violations.
- Operations and maintenance of transportation infrastructure.
- Review and approval of curbside use (e.g. Sidewalk Café and Pop-Up Patio Program).
Curbsides, the space between the sidewalk and the regular traffic lane, are an important part of the way we move and gather in Whitehorse. They are also one of our biggest public spaces and can easily be changed to meet the needs and desires of the community. Parking and curbsides are managed to equitably and strategically benefit more people in Whitehorse.
Traditionally used for parking, curbsides are transforming into valuable space for people and business. Today, the way we are using our curbside space is changing and diversifying. Curbside space may be used for a variety of mobility purposes including:
- Bicycle and micromobility (e.g. e-scooters) parking and storage.
- Transit stops and transit laybys.
- Passenger and commercial loading and unloading, and delivery zones.
- Accessible parking.
- EV charging stations.
Curbside space can be used for enhancing vibrancy of our streetscapes and for gathering purposes such as:
- Curb extensions.
- Social gathering spaces.
- Seasonal patios and outdoor dining.
- Food trucks.
