DDOT Extends 2020 Visitor Parking Passes into 2021

(Washington, DC) – Today, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced that residents should continue to use the existing 2020 Visitor Parking Pass (VPP) into 2021. The District plans to launch a streamlined digital parking permit program in 2021.

The VPP program allows District residents to register for an annual pass that is used for guests to park for more than 2 hours on Residential Permit Parking or RPP-zoned blocks.

Residents who are new to the District or need a replacement VPP (due to damage or loss) should visit their local Metropolitan Police Department precinct to request a temporary parking pass instead of a VPP.

Beginning in March 2020, and continuing for the duration of the public health emergency, the District has suspended enforcement for the following infractions:

  • Expired residential parking permits and visitor parking permits/passes
  • Expired District license plates and inspection stickers
  • Expired meters

A complete list of modifications to District operations is available at coronavirus.dc.gov/page/stay-home.

For more information, please visit ddot.dc.gov or call DDOT Customer Service at 202-671-2700.



The mission of the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is to enhance the quality of life for District residents and visitors by ensuring that people, goods, and information move efficiently and safely with minimal adverse impact on residents and the environment.
