Permits for motorcycles and scooters are free, but must be picked up from the Permit Parking office.
To determine whether your street or area is designated for permit parking, contact the Permit Parking office.

Permit parking is implemented on either a street name basis where parking is restricted to one specific street, or on an area basis where a number of streets have been grouped into permit areas in order to maximize the available parking.
A permit holder who parks on a street authorized for permit parking must park in a legal space during licenced parking hours shown on the signs on the street. Though subject to other existing traffic regulations, permit holders generally have the privilege of parking their vehicles overnight and are exempt from the 1, 2, and 3 hour parking restrictions. Conversely, vehicles without parking permits may be tagged if parked in parking spaces designated for those with permits. The permit parking by-law is enforced by Toronto Police Services, Parking Enforcement Unit. Contravention of the by-law may result in the loss of your permit parking privilege.
