Policy for parking permits

Auckland Transport's parking strategy (adopted in May 2015) provides a fair and consistent approach to managing parking in Auckland. The strategy contains a policy for issuing parking permits, establishing clear criteria to ensure they are only issued to organisations that need them to carry out critical or important work.

Under the policy, AT will only offer these parking permit categories:

  • Critical services permit.
  • Residential permit.
  • Event permit.
  • Authorised vehicles parking permit.

Permits that don’t fit into the new permit categories are being phased out. We will transition all existing parking permits to the new permit categories by mid 2016.
