Visitor Parking Pass Program

Visitor Parking Pass Program

About the Parking Pass Program

The VPP program is designed to allow guests of District residents to park for more than two hours on Residential Permit Parking or RPP-zoned blocks. A VPP is only valid during the hours of RPP enforcement and in the same RPP zone and ANC boundary as the residence. The passes are not necessary on holidays or other times when parking restrictions are not subject to enforcement.

The 2014 VPP is valid through the end of the year on December 31, 2014.

The Visitor Parking Pass can be used to provide temporary Residential Permit Parking (RPP) privileges in the following eligible wards:
  • Ward 1 - all Ward 1 residents
  • Ward 2 - 2F only.  All other Ward 2 ANCs have opted out of the program.
  • Wards 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 - all residents that live on RPP blocks
Residents who live on a commercial zone block are not eligible for VPP or RPP. Non-residential address types are not eligible for VPP/RPP.  
Approved VPPs are mailed every Friday via first class mail.
