Parking for Visitors


In recent years, Philly has become a national hub for hosting diverse events. Everybody remembers the Papal Visit in 2015, The Democratic National Convention in 2016 and The NFL Draft in 2017.

That’s excluding annual events like Wawa Welcome America’s Fourth of July festival, Jay Z’s Made in America music festival on the Parkway, and The Broad Street Run for the running enthusiast. What can we say? Philly knows how to host big events.

We want to make sure your trip into the city is as seamless as possible. That’s why we offer special parking just for visitors. Get the lowdown on how you can benefit.

Let’s Get To It:

Day passes:

  • Day passes consist of a single booklet of five parking passes for $35.
  • Residents can purchase a maximum of two booklets, and then wait 90 days before buying another.
  • Proof of residence is required.
  • To use the pass, scratch off the month and date on which the pass will be used, and write the visitor’s license plate number in the box provided on the pass. Then, hang the pass on the rearview mirror. You can download the day pass application here: Day Pass Application.

Temporary parking passes:

  • Temporary parking passes can be purchased per visitor vehicle for a maximum of 30 days (or two increments of 15 days).
  • After the 30 days have passed, that visitor vehicle has to wait 45 days before they can get another temporary pass.
  • Temporary parking passes cost $15 for 15 days. To purchase a temporary pass, visit our office at 35 N. Eighth Street.
  • Proof of residence is required.
  • Since temporary parking passes are assigned to license plates, you must provide the license plate number of the visitor’s vehicle.

Note: Day passes are valid for up to a year after purchase.

And that’s how it’s done. If you have any questions, you can call our customer service office at 215-683-9730. We can also field any questions on Twitter and Facebook.
