The Residential Parking Permit Program
responds to the problem of scarce parking on predominantly residential
streets by reducing the competition for curbside space. This can be
accomplished by enforcing a two hour parking time limit, with
residential parking permit holders exempted.
Cost of Residential Zone Parking Permit - $48.00 per year HST included per vehicle.
A Residential Zone Parking Permit may be issued to more than one vehicle per dwelling unit.
2-hour maximum parking limit on streets within the residential zones - any vehicle not bearing a valid Residential Zone Parking Permit must adhere to the two-hour limit, or may be ticketed under Subsection 7(1), 7(2), and 7(5) of the Saint John Traffic By-law.
Temporary Residential Zone Parking Permits are available for out-of-town guests of residents at a cost of $7.00 per week HST included per vehicle.
How to Qualify for a Residential Zone Parking Permit
A person must reside on a street for which the Residential Parking Permit is issued.
A resident must not have off-street parking. If off-street parking is available to them, they do not qualify for an on-street residential pass.
Must provide two documents: a valid New Brunswick Motor Vehicle Registration with the current uptown address, and a bona fide proof of residency issued to the uptown address. Examples of a bona fide proof of residency include: a recent telephone bill, power bill, water bill, recent government issued mail physically delivered to the uptown address, or a copy of a recently signed lease agreement.
