I've always been curious as to the number of dedicated parking spaces downtown, I found some articles that point to the development of surface lots over the last 40 years that is quite interesting.

Map TO came up with an estimate of approximately 40% of the surface lots which have been redeveloped from 1978 to 2019. Its not exact science but an interesting indication of how far development has come.

thought I would update that image even further to 2020, since quite a few lots have closed in the last few months:

Yet as a downtowner I've never had difficulty finding a parking space. When we four go to the Eaton Centre it's easier and cheaper to drive and park than to take TTC.
