Annual Transport Permits are for companies that have one or more vehicles travelling on Aurora roads for work purposes throughout the year.

If a vehicle exceeds the threshold in one or more categories, the Single Trip Permit requirements shall apply. The cost for an Annual Transport Permit is $105.00 per vehicle.

Single Trip Permits are for one-time trips within the City of Aurora for oversize and/or overweight vehicles.

If a round trip is required, the return trip must occur on the same day within 4 hours of initial arrival at the trip destination. The City may require that a qualified traffic signal maintenance contractor escort the load if traffic facilities are at risk. Alternatively, a City of Aurora signal crew will escort the load and overtime rates will be applied. The cost for a Single Trip Permit is $75.25 per vehicle per trip.
