Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) Program

How much does it cost?

Decals and guest permits

RPZ permits are good for a 2-year cycle.

The current fee (as of January 1, 2011) for an RPZ decal is $65 per vehicle. Decals must remain affixed to the vehicle to which they have been assigned, and cannot be transferred between vehicles.

Guest permits, which can be transferred from vehicle to vehicle, cost $30.
Some zones are partially or fully subsidized by nearby major institutions to address the impacts of parking by their employees and students. For specific fees by zone and area, please see below.

We accept checks and money orders if applying by mail. If paying in person, we accept cash, checks, VISA and Mastercard.

Low-income permits

There is a $10, discounted RPZ permit for households that indicate a financial burden.

How do I apply for a discounted permit?
Find out what zone you are in and fill out an application. Return it by mail or in person with one of the following types of documentation:

  • Quest card (formerly food stamps)
  • Energy assistance from City Light or Puget Sound Energy
  • Rent assistance from Seattle Housing Authority (Section 8)
  • A copy of a rental agreement in a Seattle Housing Authority property, welfare check or stub, medical coupons, lease or rental agreement from Plymouth Housing Group, CHHIP, or other low-income housing provider
  • Proof of SSI (Supplemental Security Income, NOT regular S.S income)
  • Other items may be considered on an individual basis

Questions? Please call us at (206) 684-5086. We can be reached Monday through Friday, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.
