Q: Am I able to park my vehicle(s) anywhere within the permit required zone?
Parking permits allow permit holders to park in Residential Parking Zones within ‘except by permit’ and time-restricted parking zones for which they have a permit for, as long as they comply with the Calgary Traffic Bylaw and posted signage.
Visitor Permits, Market Permits, Low-Income Market Permits, Non-resident Landlord Permits, and Temporary Permits are only valid within 150m of the permit’s address.
ParkPlus (payment or registration required) Zones:
Standard Residential Parking Permits, Select Permits, Market Permits, Low-Income Market Permits, Non-resident Landlord Permits and Temporary Permits are NOT valid in ParkPlus zones, unless the parking signage states, ‘except by permit’. Visitor Permits are NOT valid in any ParkPlus zones, even if the signage states ‘except by permit’. If you choose to park in a ParkPlus zone that doesn’t state ‘except by permit’, payment is required.
When parking your vehicle with a parking permit, all safety or traffic flow restrictions must be followed. These restrictions include areas such as:
- No parking zones
- No stopping zones
- Loading zones
- Parking within 5 m of a fire hydrant
- Parking within 5 m of a crosswalk
- Parking within 1.5m of access to private property
- Accessible parking zones
- Any other posted parking restrictions
