First Avenue Northwest Pilot Project To Add Digital Payment-Only Parking Stalls

The City of Moose Jaw advises that a pilot project to install northbound parking and lane changes on First Avenue Northwest will go into effect Monday, September 18, 2023.

The one-year pilot project, approved by City Council as part of the 2023 Budget, will see digital payment-only parking stalls added to the east side of First Avenue NW between Manitoba St. and Oxford St.

Each block will have its own, dedicated parking zone number, and drivers can either download and use the City’s HotSpot app to pay for parking, or scan the QR code and pay online without the app. No meters will be installed, but parking lines will be painted. The

Drivers are reminded that this change will officially leave First Avenue NW with a single lane of traffic in each direction (north and south), a shared left-turn lane and parking stalls on the outside lanes.

Additionally, at the intersections of Caribou St., Athabasca St., Fairford St., and High St., the designated right turn lane will again be available for use with new overhead signage being installed on the signalized light poles.

Crews have begun installing the new parking stalls and traffic signage, and the new stalls become available for payment in the Hotspot Parking app Monday, September 18, 2023.


City of Moose Jaw parking Meters are in effect from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday. Parking is free at meters after 6 p.m. on weekdays, all-day Saturdays, Sundays and all statutory holidays. Parking meters operate on a maximum three-hour time limit at the rates below.

If you don’t want to worry about having change for parking meters, you could purchase a pre-loaded “Park Smart” card that works at many of the downtown meters.

The Traffic Bylaw outlines how the City regulates parking to maintain community standards.

HotSpot Parking App

The City of Moose Jaw is pleased to announce that all downtown meters are integrated with the HotSpot parking app.

Users can download the HotSpot app for free in the Apple or Google Play app stores, create an account and start using the app in less than five minutes.

The app works with the existing meters, which still take coins, and the pre-paid Park Smart cards that work at many of the downtown meters. You can purchase the Park Smart cards at City Hall.
