Modern Mississauga and the City of Mississauga have come together to present an ongoing series called “Ask the City.”
We’ll share relevant information here and answer your questions about our city.
Today’s question is about temporary parking permits.
How do I to get a temporary parking permit for my guests coming to my holiday party?
A temporary or short term parking permit (a parking consideration) allows you to park on a residential street longer than the standard three hours for up to five days. A maximum of five cars can be included on the request. You can request up to 14 temporary or short term parking permits in a year for each address where there are no prohibited signs.
