Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) Permits

Permit Counter Temporary Closures

To protect the health and safety of our staff and customers, and to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19, we closed our public-facing customer service counters on Monday, March 16. Our counters remain closed until further notice. This includes both the Street Use and the Traffic and Parking permit counters at the Seattle Municipal Tower on floors 23 and 37. We are still processing permit applications.

You can submit applications for all permit types online through the Seattle Services Portal.

Our staff will be available to provide application coaching and assist with issuing permits by phone.

The Restricted Parking Zone (RPZ) Program was created to help ease parking congestion in residential neighborhoods around significant demand generators, while balancing the needs of others to be able to use the public streets.
