If I have two or more cars, what can I do?

The parking permits allow the user to register multiple vehicles (including rideshare vehicles) to your parking permit. You would have to transfer the permit between whichever vehicle you bring to campus as required.

If you have a valid UTM parking permit, you are only permitted to park in the designated lots at UTM.  To inquire about parking for any other U of T campus, you must contact the Parking Office specific to that campus.

I paid for parking at the Pay & Display machine using my credit card, but nothing printed.  What should I do?  Was I double-charged?

If you attempted to pay for parking using your credit card in a Pay & Display (P&D) machine and no slip printed, you were likely not charged.  The P&D machines operate by live authorizations and a ticket will only print if your transaction was approved.  You are required to go through the steps again until the machine prints a slip. 

Failure to display a P&D slip for any reason (failed transaction, out of order machine, declined credit card, etc.) will result in a Parking Infraction Notice (parking ticket), issued by the City of Mississauga.

Why can’t I pay for parking at the Pay & Display machines in P1 or P5 on weekdays?

On weekdays, until 5:00 p.m., P1 and P5 are reserved for permit holders only.  After 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends, patrons may purchase parking using credit card or coin from the Pay & Display machines located in those lots.
