Applications for the 2022 Active Transportation Vehicle Share Program are closed as of May 9, 2022. Current submissions are being evaluated. All applicants will be contacted once a decision has been made.
Road right-of-way defines the use of public property designated for traffic and pedestrians. You can obtain a licence for temporary use of road rights-of-way.
Active vehicles, including bicycles, e-bikes and e-scooters, encourage more people to engage in sustainable modes of transportation, offer more connections in their community, and support a healthy, vibrant city.
For the 2022-2023 ATVS Program, the City of Edmonton has implemented a competitive bidding process, which is a change to the process from last year. Submitted applications will be evaluated and two service providers will be selected for the City of Edmonton from May 2022 to December 31, 2023.
UPDATE: Applications are now closed as of May 9, 2022 at 4pm (MST). We thank all the companies that have applied, and the City is now evaluating the submissions. We will be contacting all applicants once a decision has been made mid-May
If your company is a successful bidder, you will be required to complete and sign a licence agreement and an application document that is required to operate in Edmonton.
On-Street Construction and Maintenance (OSCAM) permits are required for most work on City road-right-of-ways, including roads, sidewalks and boulevards. Use the OSCAM Permit Decision Matrix to determine whether your project needs a permit.
Average processing time for an OSCAM permit application is 6 business days. Unless it’s an emergency, allow time for processing and public notification, especially for major impacts.
All work within road rights-of-way must be completed within City of Edmonton Design and Construction standards. City lands must be restored to the same state and condition in which it existed prior to work commencement. The Guidelines for Excavation and Core Restoration (Section 2965) summarize the Design and Construction Standard key points. The construction standard has exact details for your work area.
The City has developed a set of guidelines for the installation of showhome wayfinding signage within public road rights-of-way. These guidelines align with City Council’s direction to reduce sign clutter on public lands.
External agencies and private utilities can apply for a ULA Permit to monitor or use well installations within the public road rights-of-way. All utility installations require a ULA Permit for City approval. For more information, visit Utility Line Assignment Permits.
