Sign up online or call 1-888-515-7275, with:

  • Mobile phone number
  • Credit card (Visa, MasterCard and AMEX)
  • License plate number (s)

Use the correct Location Number for the side of the street that you are parked. Parking payment by phone is NOT portable as it is with pay stations. DO NOT use a location number from across the street or around the corner.

Check your License Plate. Enter your license plate correctly. Otherwise, you might get a ticket for non-payment.

How does enforcement work? No need to display a receipt. Seattle Police Department Parking Enforcement can see your payment automatically on their enforcement equipment. Learn more about Parking Tickets and Payment.

What if I have a special license plate? Enter the full license plate number as it reads on your vehicle registration. This is different than the symbols on your plate. A UW plate = WSMPLE.
