An Eco-Pass rewards anyone who drives a fuel-efficient hybrid vehicle by giving them FREE on-street parking for a one year period at any on-street parking meters in downtown Kelowna. Normal parking and time restrictions will apply.

How do I get my pass?

Bring your vehicle registration to the fourth floor of City Hall.

What makes a hybrid?

A Hybrid-Electric Vehicle (hybrids) is a vehicle that uses a combination of an internal combustion engine and electric motor, powered by a large rechargeable battery, to move a vehicle. The battery in a hybrid is recharged either from the engine or from energy captured while braking.

  • 2004 model year or newer
  • Minimum of two person capacity

Motorcycles, scooters and non-manufacturer fuel modified vehicles are not eligible for the program.

How do I renew my Eco-Pass?

Rather than having you drive down to City Hall to renew your pass, the City has currently extended all Eco-passes until the end of 2016.   This program is currently under review.
