Residential Parking Permits

The Department of Transportation seeks to ensure adequate on-street parking for our residents and visitors. Motor vehicles bearing a special residential parking permit may park in excess of time limits posted on streets within certain areas known as resident permit parking areas (Ord. No. 2002-56,§ 1, Sec 150-159, 150-170). The Department of Transportation manages 16 Residential Permit Parking area throughout the City of Atlanta.

Valet Parking

To operate a Valet Parking service on City streets, businesses are required to obtain a Valet Parking permit. Valet Parking permits are good for one year and must be renewed annually. To obtain a Valet Parking permit, operators must meet all safety standards and provide documentation of sufficient liability insurance.

Public Parking Lots and Garages (Park-for-Hire)

The Department of Transportation requires that all parking facilities that charge for parking obtain a Park-for-Hire permit. Park-for-Hire operators, property owners that use their land as a Park-for-Hire facility, must complete a Park-for-Hire permit application prior to the operation of a parking facility.

Temporary Use Lots/Special Event Parking (Temp-for-Hire)

The Department of Transportation allows for the temporary use of parking lots to accommodate for increased parking needs during special events. Temporary parking facilities used for parking near East Lake, Lakewood Amphitheatre, Mercedes Benz Stadium, Turner Field, etc. can be obtained by completing a Temp-for-Hire permit application.
