Trade permits discontinued

From 31 August 2018, Auckland Transport will no longer issue Trade permits.

Trade permits sold up to 31 August 2018 will remain valid until 31 December 2018.

AT will not be issuing refunds for any unused Trade permits, therefore we recommend that all your Trade permits are used by 31 December 2018.

For casual parking payment you can use the pay by plate parking machines or AT Park, our online account service and app.

Eligibility

Trade permits were available for selected users that required an exemption from time restrictions or an alternative way to pay for paid parking to allow them to carry out their work. For short stays, paying for the time used at a parking meter may be more economical.

Using a trade permit

Trade permits are a physical paper scratchie permit.

To use a trade permit, scratch off the date, month and the year that the permit is being used on.

A valid permit must be clearly displayed on the vehicle dashboard, face up with the selected date visible or an infringement notice may be issued.

If more than one date is scratched off, the permit will be void.
