Frequently Asked Questions

You are eligible to apply if:

  • Your vehicle has commercial license plants
  • You operate one or more vehicles for the purpose of deliveries

How much does it cost?

The permit costs $3 to purchase. Permit holders will then pay quarterly for time spent at parking metered spaces.

Why should I apply?

Permit holders will not need to pay each time they park at a metered space. Instead, parking fees will be calculated automatically and an invoice provided quarterly. This will save you time and help you avoid parking tickets.

What are loading zones?

Loading zones are areas of the curb that are painted yellow and allow for loading and unloading of passengers and materials between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. You can take no more than three minutes to load or unload passengers. If your vehicle has commercial license plates, you have no more than 30 minutes to load or unload materials. Yellow Curb restrictions do not apply on Sundays and parking holidays.
