From DDOT:

“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced today it is launching a new, simpler way to pay for and manage parking in the Penn Quarter and Chinatown areas of Washington, DC.

Pay-By-Space parking will improve the parking experience for vehicle drivers. Pay-By-Space means drivers will now park in defined spaces, read the four- or five-digit space number on space marker posts, and then enter the number at the payment kiosks, or on their mobile devices with Parkmobile. There is no need to display a receipt on a dashboard.

Between October 13 and October 27, 2015, DDOT will roll out Pay-By-Space parking in the area from E Street to H Street, NW and 3rd Street to 11th Street, NW, as shown on the map above.

The launch area encompasses the streets around the Verizon Center, National Portrait Gallery, National Building Museum, MLK Jr. Library and Ford’s Theater. It includes approximately 1,000 on-street parking spaces.

“Paying for parking will be much more efficient,” said DDOT Director Leif Dormsjo. “Each space now has a unique number and is defined by the space marker posts. Just enter the number and pay for your space”

Pay-By-Space parking will allow DDOT to keep track of parking space usage. In early 2016, drivers will be able to access parking availability information to make it easier to find a spot.

Questions may be directed to (202) 671-2700 or 311 or go to parkdc.dc.gov for more information.”
