Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) Permits

Restricted Parking Permits Are Going Virtual!

We are moving to a virtual permitting system.  No more decals!  As of the date of the next renewal of your zone, we will no longer issue actual decals.  Your license plate(s) will be stored electronically.  60-Day Short Term Permits are virtual, too - the only change is that you will be required to enter the license plate at the time you apply.

Permit Counter Temporary Closures

To protect the health and safety of our staff and customers, and to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19, we closed our public-facing customer service counters on Monday, March 16, 2020. Our counters remain closed until further notice. This includes both the Street Use and the Traffic and Parking permit counters at the Seattle Municipal Tower on floors 23 and 37. We are still processing permit applications.

You can submit applications for all permit types online through the Seattle Services Portal. For additional information on how to apply for, use, or renew your permit(s), take a look at the RPZ Frequently Asked Questions page.

Our staff will be available to provide application coaching and assist with issuing permits by phone or e-mail.

The Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) Program was created to help ease parking congestion in residential neighborhoods around significant demand generators, while balancing the needs of others to be able to use the public streets.
