Parking Enforcement to Resume for Residential Permit Parking on Tuesday, September 1, 2020

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation will resume parking enforcement of Residential Permit Parking on Tuesday, September 1, 2020. Parking enforcement of parking meters resumed on July 13, 2020, prompting many drivers to park in nearby residential areas. This has created problems for residents trying to find available parking close to their home. If you do not have a permit on your vehicle, you will be subject to receiving a citation (ticket).

If you have an owner's or visitor's permit with an expiration date of 3/1/2020 or later, you do not have to do anything.  If properly displayed, these will be honored until further notice, even if expired.

Residents who live at an eligible RPP address can apply online starting August 10, 2020, for a new permit at pabc.thepermitstore.com if they meet one of the following criteria:

  • You are a new RPP customer who has not been able to purchase a permit due to the COVID-19 closure of PABC offices.
  • You are an existing customer who has purchased a new vehicle or has new plates.
  • You are an existing customer who moved from one RPP area to another. If you moved within the same RPP area, you many continue to use the decal and visitor permit(s) you already have.

Residents who qualify can apply online at pabc.thepermitstore.com beginning August 10, 2020, to have a permit mailed to them. The online application will allow residents to upload the required documents that are usually verified in person at the Parking Authority Office or at a Community Pickup. A Parking Authority team member will verify the documents online and mail residents their permits.

Beginning Monday, August 10, 2020, the Parking Authority Office, located at 200 W Lombard Street, Baltimore, MD 21201, will be open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Extended late-night hours and Saturday hours will not be available. The office will be open for residents who do not have online access or experience problems with the website.
