“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced today that the Visitor Parking Passes (VPP) that will expire September 30, 2014, will continue to remain valid until December 31, 2014. District residents will not be ticketed for proper use of their 2014 VPP. The VPP program is designed to allow guests of District residents to park for more than two hours on Residential Permit Parking (RPP) zoned blocks.
“As Washington, DC, continues to gain more than 1,000 new residents a month and economic development is on the rise, DDOT is striving to implement a VPP program that will offer guests and contractors with the temporary privilege of the RPP program, while minimizing the potential impact on neighborhood parking supply,” said DDOT Director Matthew Brown.
To better serve the needs of District residents, DDOT is focused on providing passes to those eligible residents who register for passes. Residents can register for 2014 VPP at https://vpp.ddot.dc.gov/vpp/ or call (202) 671-2700. This registration process will assist DDOT in managing the effectiveness and proper use of the passes. Each pass will be tracked and assigned a unique address identifier with a reference code that will minimize fraud and misuse.
District residents who do not have 2014 VPPs may also obtain theirs at a Metropolitan Police Department station or substation in the ward in which they reside. The 2014 passes are currently available with only one pass allowed per household by going to https://vpp.ddot.dc.gov/vpp/ or calling (202) 671-2700.
The VPP passes can be used for temporary RPP privileges in the following eligible wards:
- Ward 1 – all Ward 1 residents
- Ward 2 – 2F only.
- Wards 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 – all residents who live on RPP blocks
Residents living in commercial zone blocks are not eligible for VPP or RPP. Non-residential addresses are not eligible for VPP/RPP.
