Parking Program

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 on the Parking Signs page 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 below). 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. Learn more about what we do in our Curbside Management Team 2019 Annual Report
