Permit Applications for Residents

Parking PermitsAn Area Parking Permit Program is designed to help citizens who live or work in non-metered areas by controlling commuter parking in their area. This is done through a permit system that limits commuters who don't live or work in that area to a visitor time limit. Those who do have businesses or live in the area may apply to purchase a permit, allowing parking beyond the visitor limit.

Applications can be filled in onscreen but must be printed and mailed along with a check or money order and copies of your proof of residence (see application for details).

Mail completed application, required proof, payroll information, and check or money order (made payable to City of Portland) to:

Parking Control
Bureau of Transportation System Management
1120 SW 5th Avenue, Room 800
Portland OR 97204

Applications submitted without complete information will be returned.
