A:  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.

Residents living at qualifying addresses can apply for two vehicle-specific permits at no cost. There is a fee for the third and subsequent permits. Residential Parking Permits are valid for two years.  In AAA and YY permit zones, only one permit is available per qualifying address and there is a fee for these permits.
