For immediate release: April 2, 2020 - 4:34pm
FI20-1150

We are constantly reassessing developments to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and citizens and how the City delivers public services during the COVID-19 pandemic.​

Sale of Residential Parking Program Permits

  • The parking restrictions related to the Residential Parking Permit (RPP) zones have been suspended until further notice.
  • RPP permits are set to expire over the coming months: for example, City Park RPP permits expire on May 1, 2020.
  • New permits will not be required, or issued, until the RPP Program is reinstated and the public are able to purchase permits at City Hall.
  • Please retain and display existing 2019 Residential Parking Program permits as they may be required for the transition period when the program is once again in place.
  • Updated information on the program status and details on future permit sales will be provided on saskatoon.ca/parking.

Sale of Parking Permits for People with a Disability

  • New parking permits (holograms) for people with a disability are typically available for sale at City Hall beginning April 1, 2020, for the May 1, 2020, renewal date.
  • At this time, the sale of permits will be suspended until City Hall is open to the public and pay parking requirements are once again in effect.
  • Please retain and display existing 2019 permits as they may be required for the transition period when the program is reinstated.
  • Updated information on the program status and details on future permit sales will be provided on saskatoon.ca/parking.
  • As a reminder, parking restrictions for designated accessibility parking stalls are being enforced to ensure these spaces are available for people with accessibility needs. A valid SaskAbilities permit must be displayed on any vehicle parked in an accessible parking space.

Bridge Walkways

  • Temporary access restrictions are now in place on many bridge walkways to allow for necessary social/physical distancing or have been closed if they are not wide enough for users to keep a two-metre distance away from others. Crews have posted signage to also remind people to keep a safe distance at all times. 
  • The CP Pedestrian Bridge and Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge walkways are closed. The Traffic Bridge, Broadway Bridge and University Bridge, with walkways on both sides, are now operating as one-way only.
  • For information on restrictions on all other City bridge walkways, visit our COVID-19 frequently asked questions.
