Parking Regulations

Learn about parking in Surrey and save yourself a ticket!  

Parking regulations are in place to help keep Surrey safe and make on-street parking available for everyone. On-street parking regulations are an important tool to ensure the safe and efficient movement of pedestrians, cyclists, public transit and motorists in our City.           

For commercial and industrial parking please refer to Truck Parking.

Open Access to On-Street Parking 

Modern streets are valuable assets that must accommodate not just cars but other forms of transportation such as cycling, transit, and walking.

With this shared use in mind, the City’s planning and design standards emphasize the provision of parking “off-street” rather than on-street. Where on-street parking is provided, it must also serve multiple user groups, including visitors, business users, and residents.

Surrey does not have a Resident Permit Program, based on other cities’ experience with this attempt at regulation. However, property owners can request a change to parking regulations.

If you are requesting parking enforcement in your area please contact (604) 591-4352. If you have a general inquiry about our parking regulations your ticket or about our appeal process, please call (604) 591-4178. Please note we do not accept any appeals over the phone.
