Parking Management

The Town of Telluride uses ToCite, an online parking permit portal, to issue both business and residential parking permits. 

Once you have applied for a parking permit online via ToCite, you will receive an email notification within 7 days that your permit has been approved and you will also be notified the month your permit expires.
