Carpool Parking

If you drive to a station with one or more passengers and your station offers carpool parking, then you can apply for a free carpool parking permit.

The permit lets you park in a carpool parking space at your station, before 9:30 a.m., Monday to Friday, excluding holidays. You may park only one vehicle in a carpool parking space at any one time.

No new applications are being accepted for King City, Maple, Long Branch, Mimico, Etobicoke North, Weston and Centennial GO Stations at this time as a result of a large waiting list.

 

How to Apply for a Permit

  1. See if your station offers carpool parking.
  2. Find a carpool match.
  3. Apply for a free carpool parking permit.
  4. Display it in your car on the days you park at a carpool spot.
