Round-trip Parking Guide

Freedom from parking hassles is one of the big advantages of carsharing. There’s no need to pay for monthly parking, and it’s one more way that carsharing saves you money, since parking is included when you use a Communauto Atlantic vehicle!

With a round-trip vehicle you always return the car to the same station you picked the car up from. Stations are marked as solid green on the map. But you can take advantage of these great perks during your trip.

For information specific to FLEX trips see the FLEX Parking Guide.

On street

All cars have parking permits so you can park on street during your trip where signage allows it. Our parking permits work in all Halifax parking permit zones (not pay zones).

Good Signs:

All Communauto Atlantic cars are permitted to park at these signs.

The specific times on the signs may vary, but in general you can park at 1-hour, 2-hour, and permit only spots.

Caution Signs:

Avoid spots where street cleaning will be happening while you are parked. Usually the other side of the street is OK! And remember – street cleaning starts after midnight, so check the time carefully.

Avoid timed no parking, no stopping, and tow-away signs.

Can I park in a pay parking zone?

While you can use a pay parking zone for a stopover, remember to follow all rules and pay for your parking!

Halifax and Dartmouth Waterfront Lots

Thanks to our partners at Develop NS and Alderney Landing, Communauto Atlantic cars can park for free in these waterfront lots during your trip. No pay and display needed!

These lots are indicated as part of the FLEX zone on our map.

FLEX drop-off points

FLEX drop off points are designated parking spots reserved exclusively for releasing FLEX cars. Do not park a round-trip vehicle at these locations, even during your trip!
