How much does a Residential Parking Permit Cost?
The first two Residential Parking Permits are issued at no cost. There is a $50 charge (plus GST) for the third and subsequent permits. The $50 fee came into effect on November 1, 2011 and is under Calgary Traffic Bylaw 26M96, section 20 (3)(a).
Two special permit areas exist in Bridgeland (Zone AAA) and Somerset (Zone YY). A $25 plus GST ($26.25) fee applies to the permits in these areas. One permit is issued per residence in a permit year.
Where I can park with a Residential Parking Permit?
Residential parking permits allow you to park in residential parking zones and time-restricted parking zones. As long as you obey traffic bylaws, you may park anywhere in the restricted area or zone for which you have a permit.
They DO NOT allow vehicles to be parked in violation of safety or traffic flow restrictions. These include areas such as:
Residential parking permits are also NOT VALID in ParkPlus zones. If you choose to park in a ParkPlus zone, please note payment is required. Please watch carefully for signs noting parking restrictions and ParkPlus zones to ensure you don't receive a parking ticket.
Can other people use my Residential Parking Permit?
Sorry, parking permits are issued to license plates registered to a specific address. They are not transferable and cannot be used in other restricted parking zones.
