The purpose of the Business Identity Card Permit is to provide special short-term parking privileges for drivers of commercial or delivery and pick-up vehicles, not including passenger services, in the downtown and business districts of the City. The card is essentially a permit that allows drivers to temporarily park on-street in “Loading” or signed “No Parking” zones. It is intended to serve business-related drivers and is applicable across the City, where defined Loading or No Parking zones exist along the street. It is not intended to provide any special privilege with respect to metered parking or other parking-restricted areas.
Permit holders are allowed to stop, for purposes of delivery, pick-up, or loading, for: (i) up to fifteen (15) minutes in a "No Parking Zone"; or (ii) up to fifteen (15) minutes in a "Loading Zone".
