Some changes to hospital parking in Chatham should make the system more flexible and in some cases may save people money.

“Basically responding to feedback from the community our old system was quite antiquated,” says Director of Support Services┬áBeth Hall. “We offer a number of different payment options it doesn’t have to just be loonies and toonies.”

People will be able to pay on an hourly basis, and while the full day rate goes up to $7, it will allow people to come and go without paying again.

Debit and credit cards will also be accepted. The new system goes into use tomorrow, and the lot at the Sydenham Campus will be converted to the new system later in the spring.
