A residential parking permit is a permit issued by the Calgary Parking Authority to residents living at a qualifying address within a residential parking zone.
Qualified dwelling units can apply for two permits simultaneously at no cost. Exceptions are the AAA and YY permit zones.
You can search through the different residential parking areas by visiting our website at www.calgaryparking.com/parkingpermits or by calling 403-537-7000.
Note: Not every address within a Residential Parking Zone qualifies for a Residential Parking Permit. Please contact us at 403-537-7000 for specific addresses and requirements.
Communities may ask for residential parking restrictions to protect their communities from excessive parking in the area. The residents of the community petition through The City of Calgary's Traffic Operations to have their area restricted. City Council must approve the creation of new zones. If you are a resident in the area you must then apply for your parking permits to park on the affected streets.
