HDB Season parking allows you to park within a designated group of HDB carparks at any time, without having to display parking coupons.
They are sold on a calendar month basis, and are allocated to residents based on the order of priority.
Different booking dates are allocated to different priority groups, ensuring that everyone has a fair chance at buying season parking. If you’re a HDB resident, you’ll get first priority to book a car park lot.
If your preferred car park is full, you can always choose to park at another spot within the same HDB car park group. This ensures you’ll never have to walk too far to your vehicle.
If your vehicle is a car, you will also need to note the two tiers for this regular season parking as the charges are different:
Tier 1: Applies to a resident’s first car of the household.
Tier 2: Applies to the resident’s subsequent cars and all cars of non-residents.
How to Apply for HDB’s Season Parking?

With FSP, you can park at the car park lots allocated for season parking holders near a family member’s home. This is applicable for any hour of any day, so you can visit your family more often without feeling the need to leave early.
