Parking in Toronto
Let’s say, for example, that you want to check out one of our fabulous real estate listings or visit one of the amazing restaurants that our talented bloggers have reviewed, but you aren’t familiar with the area and you don’t know where to park. No problem! We present you with “Green P” (for Green Parking), where you can enter in any address intersection or venue, and the website will provide you with the nearest public parking areas and their rates. Tow truck here? Have no fear! Now you can be confident that you’ve parked and paid in a designated area. The ‘street view’ option will allow you to view (in advance) exactly what the lot entrance and exits look like, so you aren’t caught off-guard when you are driving and looking for the lot.

Using Public Transit
With exorbitant parking prices, most Toronto visitors and natives use the public transit systems as a means of getting around. Of course, with cross-overs between the TTC, GO, Viva, and Via Rail transit systems, navigating your way across Canada’s largest city can be daunting. If you need a comprehensive map that will service all of your transit needs, we suggest the Toronto Transit Map, which provides detailed information for buses, subways, streetcars, and LRT (Light Rapid Transit) for the majority of the Greater Toronto Area. You will never be lost again!
