Citywide Parking Permits

About 30% of Vancouver's street space is dedicated to parking.

Help us build a cleaner, healthier city while better managing street space.

In November 2020, Vancouver City Council directed staff to explore a citywide residential parking program with a carbon surcharge as part of the Climate Emergency Action Plan.

The program would help us reduce pollution while addressing current and future parking issues in a growing, changing city. It would:

  • Make it easier for residents, visitors, and service providers to find parking
  • Encourage people buying new vehicles to choose electric ones
  • Enable space to be converted to other uses like wider sidewalks, green infrastructure and public space

In general, residents would need a permit to park on the street. Permits in new zones would have a low base rate, with additional fees for polluting vehicles built after the program comes into effect.
