Residential parking permits
Residential parking permits ensure that residents have priority in parking on their streets.
Residential parking programs are created in areas where there is a high demand for parking. This can include neighbourhoods with schools, hospitals, or busy commercial areas.
Streets with residential parking combine restricted resident parking with time-limited and unregulated spaces for visitors.
Exceptions to residential parking rules
