How to Add Parking Information to Your Website

We offer businesses and organizations the ability to create a free “web banner” for their website, providing visitors an area map and nearby SP+ facilities. When website visitors click through the banner, a map generated on the SP+ website shows the business’ location and surrounding SP+ facilities, along with parking discount coupons (where available), rates and additional location information. The free banner tool is perfect for increasing foot traffic to a neighbourhood restaurant, the local boutique or a family-owned bakery, simply by copying and pasting customized HTML code into an existing web page.

Business owners or webmasters can create their free parking banner through a few easy steps. Simply visit your city’s SP+ homepage, click on “City Programs” in the main menu bar, and select “How to Add Parking Info to your Website” from the drop-down menu.

On the “Add Parking Info” page, enter the company name and address to create a widget for the businesses’ web site. The person entering the information can choose the colour and size for the banner, along with a parking logo. Once created, the customized HTML code is generated, allowing for an easy copy and paste into the website. A multitude of pre-set sizes are available, making it easy to incorporate. Users can see a live preview of the button, as well as test what end-users will see when clicking through.
