The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) mailed out more than 111,000 new visitor parking passes through late November. The new passes are valid through September 30, 2014.
The Visitor Parking Pass (VPP) program is designed to allow guests of District residents to park for more than two hours on Residential Permit Parking (RPP) blocks. The passes are only valid during the hours of RPP enforcement and are not necessary on holidays or other times when parking restrictions are not subject to enforcement.
Visitor passes were issued to residents in Wards 1, 3, 4, 5 and some parts of Ward 6.
If you reside in one of these areas and did not receive a VPP—or live on an eligible RPP block—please visit vpp.ddot.dc.gov to request a pass. You may also request a VPP by calling (202) 673-6813 between 8:15 am and 4:45 pm, Monday through Friday, to speak with a DDOT representative. If you are eligible, DDOT will mail a pass to your address.
Eligible residents that previously requested a VPP will receive a pass in the mail.
Please note that residents are also able to obtain temporary parking passes from Metropolitan Police Department stations for eligible vehicles.
More information about the Visitor Parking Pass program is available online at ddot.dc.gov/vpp.
Please Note: District residents who receive the passes cannot use them in lieu of registering their vehicles with the District Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If residents receiving passes have guests that stay overnight regularly, then the visitor must register their vehicle through the Registration of Out of State Automobile (ROSA) program once a Warning Citation is issued by DPW parking enforcement personnel.
