Residential Permit Parking

Certain streets restrict parking to neighborhood residents during specified hours. By keeping non-residents out of the zone, Residential Permit Parking makes it easier for people to park by their home.

To determine whether you live in a residential permit parking zone, enter your address here.

You can access an interactive map of all Chicago's permit parking zones here.

If you live in a residential permit parking zone, you will pay an additional $25 for your annual City Vehicle Sticker. The zone number will appear on the sticker, giving you the right to park in that zone.

In addition, if you live in a zone, you may purchase up to two books of guest passes per month. Each book contains 15 passes. Each pass is good for 24 hours.

You can purchase City Stickers and Daily Passes at the Chicago City Clerk’s offices:

  • 5430 W. Gale Street (by the Jefferson Park train station), M-F 9-5
  • City Hall, 121 N. LaSalle St, Room 107, M-F 8-5
  • Online

You may be required to present photo ID, and proof of address (such as lease or mortgage).
