Cochrane Station Parking

To all our valued customers:

Ontario Northland will be enhancing our Cochrane Station parking lot services by implementing a secured vehicle key management system and offering long-term vehicle storage.

Effective March 1st, 2018 a new parking policy for the Cochrane Station will be implemented to ensure both customers and employees have access to short term parking (less than 48 hours).


Station Inn Hotel Guests

Hotel guests will be instructed to park in designated hotel parking spots for the duration of their stay. All guests will be issued a parking pass that must be displayed in the front vehicle window.


Passengers, Customers and Other Guests

Parking for passengers, customers and other guests will remain available at the Cochrane Station for those wishing to park for 48 hours or less.  

Long-term parking (parking for 48 hours or more) will be available through HMS Storage.



Effective March 1st, 2018 vehicles parked in a designated area without the appropriate parking permit, and vehicles parked beyond the permitted 48 hours, will be towed at the owner’s risk and expense.

Please make arrangements for long-term parking through HMS Storage 705.272.9215 if you plan on parking your vehicle for 48 hours or longer.
