Overnight On-Street Parking Permits Now Available
The City of Toronto has agreed to provide visitors with a temporary overnight parking permit at a cost of $8 and a 48 hour (known as a “weekender”) parking permit at a cost of $12 to visitors or $20 for a seven-day permit, plus H.S.T. who want to avoid a $30 or $40 parking ticket. This will help those who have little or no street parking in front of their residences and will allow family and friends to park overnight or for two (2) days (48 hours) with out the embarassment of unwanted and unnecessary parking tickets.
City of Toronto residents can now obtain a temporary on-street parking permit for their guests for either a 24-hour or a 48-hour time period.
Permits, which are required for vehicles to be parked on streets designated for permit parking, can be obtained online. The cost for a 24-hour permit is $8 while a 48-hour permit is $12 and a seven (7) day permit is $20 – plus H.S.T.
“As part of the Mayor’s commitment to improving customer service, these new permits will provide more convenience, allowing guests to stay overnight or for a weekend without receiving a parking ticket,” said Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong (Ward 34, Don Valley East), Chair of the City’s Public Works and Infrastructure Committee.
To get a permit, applicants need access to a computer and printer, credit card, and a couple of minutes to fill out some basic information online. The simple, step-by-step procedure can be found at http://www.toronto.ca/transportation. Weekly on-street parking permits can also be obtained through this method. Residents can also apply for an overnight on-street parking permit in person at Toronto City Hall, Etobicoke Civic Centre and East York Civic Centre.
