Residential Parking Permits are required for on-street parking in the zoned parking areas of Hyattsville. Zone maps can be viewed here. If you reside in a parking zone, on-street parking is only allowed with a valid parking permit during the specific times noted on the street signs.
Permit parking compliance is performed by the Hyattsville Parking Compliance staff using License Plate Recognition (LPR) equipment and software. Vehicle license plates are “read’ and deemed authorized or unauthorized as a valid permit holder. It is up to the permit holder to keep their license plate information updated in their account.
Residential Parking Permit applications are filled out and submitted online. The City does not accept in-person or mailed residential parking applications.

The application for additional Residential Parking Permits or special permits can be found here. Please note that Special permits and additional permits are not guaranteed, and are reviewed in the order in which they are received.

Guest Parking Passes
Each Residence within a zoned parking permit area may request up to 50 Guest Parking Passes a year through the office of Parking Compliance. Both parking permit holders and non-permit holders may request passes with documentation of their residence. Only one (1), fifty pass booklet is allowed per residence regardless of the number of parking permits registered at that residence.
Guest passes are ONE-DAY passes that must be filled out completely with the license plate of the guest vehicle and the specific one day (24 hours) of use clearly documented on the pass. If a guest is staying for multiple days, they must change the guest pass daily with the current date visible.
Requests and Concerns
To express a concern, please use this form. Your comments will be shared with parking staff and the City Administrator. Please note that additional permits are now being considered, and once initial rollout of the program is complete, staff will consider resident requests and concerns and make modifications as appropriate.
Becoming a Residential Parking Zone
Residents interested in designating their block as part of a Residential Parking Zone are required to have a petition signed by 51 percent of residents in the requested zone. You can access the petition here.
UPDATE: Following a resident petition, the City of Hyattsville has designated the 5500 block of 38th Avenue as a residential parking zone. The area will become a part of the existing Residential Parking Zone 13 as of May 1, 2023. NOTE: An incorrect date was listed in the February Hyattsville "Green Sheet" Reporter. Parking restrictions will be in place from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. seven days a week and apply to all vehicles parked on curbside parking spaces within the designated area. Beginning February 1, affected property owners can apply for residential parking permits at hyattsville.org/parking. Have questions? Please call (301) 985-5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
