Temporary Permits

Once you have purchased your parking permit, you will need to print your temporary parking permit. Temporary Permits must display the license plate of the vehicle you are driving and displaying the permit in. If you change vehicles you must go in and change the license plate on the temporary permit and reprint.

The parking permit will be valid for 14 days, which should allow enough time for you to receive your parking permit in the mail. If you have any questions or have not received your permanent parking permit within 7-10 days, please contact Parking Management Bureau at (800) 700-4417.
