Residential Parking Permit Program

The Residential Parking Permit Program is a way to give residents of a designated area a better chance to park near their homes. Designated areas must meet certain impaction criteria. Generally, areas around major institutions (hospitals, universities, etc.) are impacted. This will not guarantee anyone a parking space.

The Recertification Process

Every four years the City of Pittsburgh is required to recertify each Residential Parking Permit Program district. The purpose of re-certification is to certify the continued existence of the primary impactor on which the original designation was based and certify that 70% of households, by petition, survey or combination thereof, still desire participation in the program.

The re-certification process includes a community meeting with current permit holders, a questionnaire mailed to every permit holder, a parking survey, and submission of a re-certification report to the City Planning Commission and City Council.
