Why not build a giant intercept parking lot?
Intercept parking lots are one of the many ideas explored by the Town as potential long-term parking solutions.


In 2018 Banff’s Municipal Planning Commission approved the development of a 500 stall intercept parking lot at the Banff train station, with completion anticipated for summer 2019, within 10 minutes walking distance of downtown. Shuttle services will also be provided between the new parking lot and downtown by Roam Transit.


Further planning for intercept parking near the town’s east entrance continues with the federal government and Parks Canada, as Banff’s fixed boundary does not offer existing space to accommodate a parking lot of the size required on Town owned land.
