“Regarding the Godawful Visitor Parking System (ParkDC)”

“Dear PoPville,

Having followed my fellow readers’ shared frustration with the awful new ParkDC system, I thought I’d contribute my experience.

After two and a half weeks calling and emailing the ParkDC help line about adding the address of my Connecticut Avenue condo building to their system so I could create a guest parking pass, I finally went straight to the source today and called DDOT directly.

On the phone with a rep, I was told that because it is zoned as a commercial rather than a residential street, any and all Connecticut Ave. addresses are not included in their system and are thus ineligible for visitor parking passes.

Seeing as there must be literally thousands of people living on commercially zoned streets affected by this decision, I wondered if anyone else has gotten any kind of a different response.

At best, this is a thoughtless and stupid policy–at worst, it deliberately favors those living in single family homes over condos and apartments which are predominantly located on busy, commercial streets.

Thank you for indulging my rant!”
