Visitor Parking Passes

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is continuing the annual Visitor Parking Pass (VPP) program in Wards 1, 3, 4, 5 and portions of 6. The goal of the VPP program is to make it easier for residents to host their guests.

A Visitor Parking Pass is mailed to each residence in the proscribed Wards which eliminates the inconvenience of having to obtain a new temporary visitor parking permit each time a visitor is expected.

During the month of July, DDOT will provide 2012/2013 visitor passes to residents in the following areas:

  • Ward 6 - Residents on RPP blocks in the Ballpark Area
  • Ward 5 - Residents on RPP blocks
  • Ward 4 - Residents on RPP blocks
  • Ward 3 - Residents on RPP blocks
  • Ward 1 - Residents in ANCs 1A, 1B and 1C and residents on RPP blocks in ANC 1D
  • West - 9th Street SW
  • South - Potomac Avenue SW
  • East - 11th Street SE
  • North - Pennsylvania Avenue SE

If you live in any of these areas you will receive an annual visitor’s pass that will allow your guests to park on RPP blocks in your community; this includes sides of streets with Resident Only RPP protection. These passes are only valid during the hours of RPP enforcement, and they do preclude a resident from Registration of Out-of-State Automobiles (ROSA) tickets, if they live in the District of Columbia and do not register their vehicle with the District DMV within 30 days of moving to the city.
