Toronto - City of Toronto residents and their guests can now obtain a temporary on-street parking permit conveniently from their own home or office without having to visit a City service counter.

Permits, which are required for residents or their guests to park on streets designated for permit parking, can now be obtained online as part of the City’s eService program. This program is aimed at providing 24/7 access to many City services.

All you need is access to a computer and printer, credit card, and just a couple of minutes to fill out some basic information in order to complete this transaction. The simple, step-by-step procedure can be found at http://www.toronto.ca/transportation.

“This is another program where residents and their guests can access City services online on a 24/7 basis,” said Councillor Paula Fletcher. “Many residents have told me that they look forward to taking advantage of this convenient service to get their permits.”
