TRANSFER OF PERMIT:
Lot permits are not transferable between customers. Only the City of Tampa Parking Division may authorize application and distribution of permits.
Customers may cancel his/her active permit online by logging into his/her account. Once logged in, from “View Your Permits”, click on the permit to cancel.
