Residential Parking Passes

A two-hour, time restricted parking is in place to limit the number of non-residents who park in residential areas. 

There is no charge for a residential parking permit. The property owner is responsible for applying for parking permits. Property owners must apply to the City of Kamloops with names, vehicle licence plate numbers, and valid ID that contains proof of residence. Proof of residence can be shown with a utility bill, phone bill, or a driver's licence that associates the applicant's identity with the property address.

Permanent Hangtags

As part of the new IPASS system from Precise ParkLink, all downtown residents will now receive permanent hangtags. DO NOT throw these out—you will no longer receive new permits each year.
