“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will offer a temporary permit for Restaurant Pick Up Drop-Off (PUDO) Zones to allow residents and commercial drivers easy access to restaurants and eateries that are still offering delivery or carry out service during Mayor Bowser’s declared public health emergency.
DDOT has proactively installed signage at 20 locations across the District designating temporary Restaurant PUDO Zones. A full map of locations is available here and on coronavirus.dc.gov. These temporary Restaurant PUDO Zones will be in effect through the end of the declared public health emergency.
Restaurant owners can request a permit for a temporary Restaurant PUDO Zone through their Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANC) and Main Street Organizations. DDOT has waived the fees for these permits. The requests for the free permits may be submitted via DDOT’s Transportation Online Permitting System (TOPS).”
