Park N Ride Lot Locations

There are existing park and ride lots located at:
  • County Road 17 (Cemetary Side Road)
  • County Road 15 at highway 7
  • County Road 10 (Richmond Road) at Highway 15
  • County Road 1 (Rideau Ferry Road) and County Road 21 (Elmgrove Road)
These lots are used primarily on weekdays for people commuting to work but also on weekends for people who park and then enjoy the recreational facilities in the County. Commuters also use informal locations throughout the County for parking.
During the focus groups sessions and in the web based questionnaire, people identified many locations where they believed park and ride lots would be helpful. Identified locations were frequently close to population centres such as Almonte, Carleton Place, Perth and Smiths Falls as well as villages and hamlets. Preferred locations were near major intersections. Suggestions were to park in existing parking spaces which are not generally used during the workday time period such as at arenas, community centres, halls and churches, in order to make better use of existing infrastructure.
