The following information was distributed via the Listservs yesterday regarding the visitor parking pass program. Knowing that many residents have been asking about this, and have concerns about visitors being ticketed, I’m sharing it here:
2012/2013 Passes Will Remain Valid Through December 2013
(Washington D.C.) Today the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced it has started to distribute the 2013/2014 Visitor Parking Pass (VPP). The new passes are being distributed via mail to households located in Wards 1, 3, 4, 5 and parts of Ward 6 (H Street and Ballpark District) and DDOT plans to complete the mailing by December.
The residents in these Wards may expect to receive their pass no later than December 2013.
Although the 2012/2013 pass will remain valid through December 2013 residents are reminded to discard their old pass upon receiving the 2013/14 pass.
The new pass will be made available free of charge and only one pass will be provided per household.
Households located outside of the 2013/2014 VPP participating area may visit their local police station or substation to request a temporary parking pass.
Questions about the VPP program may be directed to DDOT’s customer service line at 202-673-6813 during normal business hours.
About the Parking Pass Program
The VPP program is designed to allow guests of District residents to park for more than two hours on RPP<http://dc.gov/DC/DDOT/Services/Parking+Services/Residential+Permit+Parking> zoned blocks. A VPP is only valid during the hours of RPP enforcement and in the same RPP zone and ANC boundary as the residence.
District residents cannot use a VPP in lieu of registering their vehicles with the District Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If residents who receive a pass have guests that stay overnight frequently, then the visitor should register their vehicle through the Registration of Out of State Automobile<http://dmv.dc.gov/service/registration-out-state-automobiles-rosa> (ROSA) program once a Warning Citation is issued by DPW parking enforcement personnel.
