Please ensure that you bring the required documentation; click here to see the documents required when applying for residential parking permits.

Residential Parking Permit Costs

Effective November 1, 2011, dwellings requiring more than 2 vehicle permits will be required to pay $50 plus GST ($52.50) per year for the third and subsequent permits issued. Payment by cash, cheque, credit card or debit card will be accepted.

Note: this does not apply to Visitor permits.

This change is the result of a revision to the Calgary Traffic Bylaw 26M96 under section section 22 (4)(b).

The Calgary Parking Authority is authorized to issue residential parking permits per Dwelling Unit as follows:  

                 (a) 2 permits at no cost, and  

                 (b) additional permits upon payment of a fee of $100.00 per permit.
