Renewing Your Residential Parking Permit
Residential Parking Permits are Going Paperless!
On May 9, 2017, Council approved changes to the Calgary Traffic Bylaw that allow the Residential Parking Permit (RPP) program to use electronic rather than physical permits. Click here to find out more.
Residential parking permits expire annually. You can renew your annual parking permit up to two (2) months in advance of your zone's expiry date.
As a courtesy, renewal letters are mailed out to residences two months in advance of the permit expiry wherever possible. Please note, you do not need a renewal letter to be able to renew your permit.
The expiry dates for your zone are:
January 31: Zone C, SCA, BEW
February 28: Zone J, FF, OO, PP, QQ, VV
March 31: Zone K, L, XX, SSW, SPR, CHR, AUB

Special Permit Zones
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. The expiry dates for these zones are as follows:
September 30: Zone AAA (Available for issue on or after September 1)
December 31: Zone YY (Available for issue on or after December 1)
Courtesy renewal letters are not available in special permit zones.
How to Renew your Residential Parking Permit
Please note, the Calgary Parking Authority does not keep previous permit applications or documentation. Therefore, you will need to provide the same documentation each year you apply for a permit.
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) 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 20 (3)(a).
The Calgary Parking Authority is authorized to issue the following stickers* per dwelling unit:
(i) TWO (2) stickers at no cost, and
(ii) Additional stickers upon payment of an annual fee of $50.00 plus GST per sticker.
*Note: Although the Traffic Bylaw uses the word "sticker," the vehicle permits issued by the Calgary Parking Authority are paper permits rather than stickers or decals.
