Does your vehicle qualify?

For a vehicle to be eligible for a commercial parking decal, it must be used for the collection or delivery of goods, wares, merchandise, or other commodities in the ordinary course of business.

Vehicles used by businesses for administrative or sales-related tasks are not eligible to be licensed commercially. A SmartPark in-vehicle parking meter can be purchased to conveniently pay for parking. Simply set the SmartPark when you park your car and switch it off when you return. You only pay for the time you park. For more information, please visit https://www.whistler.ca/services/transportation/parking/smart-park
