Can I Park Here?

Parking is a key piece of the transportation puzzle. As a limited resource that’s often in high demand, SDOT manages on-street parking to:

  • balance competing needs (transit, customers, residents, shared vehicles),
  • move people and goods efficiently,
  • support business district vitality, and
  • create livable neighborhoods.

The Can I Park Here brochure provides 22 ways to avoid getting a parking ticket and other handy parking info.

SDOT has a variety of programs and projects in place to meet these goals (learn more via links to the left). Parking responsibilities are spread throughout the city, so we work closely with Seattle Police Department Parking Enforcement, Department of Planning and Development (off-street parking), the Municipal Court, Finance and Administrative Services, and others.
