Apply for a Carpool On-Street Parking Permit


On-street carpool parking spots are designated by posted signs. You must have a valid carpool parking permit to park in one of these areas.

If you and one or more people want to share parking costs and use permitted carpool parking locations, ​you must apply in person at the Permit Application Center. You and every carpool rider will need to provide your contact information and sign the application form. The primary passholder is responsible for the monthly bill.

However, carpool applications have priority on the parking location wait lists.

Carpool on-street parking permits are subject to availability and charged a one-time processing and automation fee.
