Philadelphia Parking Guide About Philadelphia Philadelphia is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the second largest in all the East Coast. It is also popularly referred to as “Philly” and “The City of Brotherly Love,” the reason for the latter being that the Greek origin of the city’s name philos and adelphos literally translates to ‘love’ and ‘brother’ respectively. Considered to be an important center for culture and the arts, Philadelphia’s major attractions include the Philadelphia Museum of Art and its famous “Rocky steps”, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, which is home to the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra. Philadelphia is also believed to have more public artwork than any other city in the nation and scattered throughout the city are works by such masters as William Rush, Auguste Rodin, Daniel Chester French, and the three Alexander Calders. Philadelphia falls within the humid subtropical zone and its climate is marked by hot and humid summers, mild autumns and springs, and notoriously unpredictable winters. The variability of snowfall in the region necessitates much forethought, particularly in terms of travel and transportation. Parking in Philadelphia The Philadelphia Parking Authority (PPA) manages the parking system in Philadelphia and the use of parking meters figures chiefly in their parking management efforts. Old-style single-space parking meters, which can be activated with coins (or a Smart Card, at least until December 31, 2014) are the most common type in Philadelphia, but multi-space parking meters are becoming a more frequent and familiar sight around the city. To use a parking space controlled by a multi-space meter, you can purchase time by paying at a parking meter kiosk; these kiosks normally accept coins, bills and credit cards. Motorcycle and Scooter parking in Philly Certain parking zones in the area between Arch and Locust, Broad and 20 Streets accommodate only motorcycle and scooters. The meter fee in these zones is equivalent to one-half of the rate on the rest of the block. Parking Tickets and Violations Philly’s list of parking violations include parking longer than the time you purchased on the meter, parking in spaces designated for people with disabilities, parking during prohibited hours or in prohibited zones. For more details, please visit PPA’s page on parking violations. Parking in Philly Garages and lots PPA also operates garages and lots throughout the city.

Washington, D.C. Parking Guide About Washington, D.C. Formally the District of Columbia, Washington, D.C. derives its popular name from President George Washington, who played a deciding role in the area’s selection as the permanent seat of government in early 1791. Washington, D.C.’s origins as a planned city can be readily felt in the decidedly metropolitan character of its landscape and attractions, chief of which (though perhaps needless to say) is the White House. The streets of Washington, D.C. are among the busiest in the nation. A 2013 report by the U.S. Census Bureau ranked it as having one of the highest number of commuters coming from another county; this report was based on 2006-2010 estimates from the American Community Survey, which registered around 540,000 workers commuting into D.C. from surrounding areas. Parking in Washington, D.C. The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) manages parking in Washington D.C. and employs around 17,000 metered parking spaces in its bid to do so effectively. DDOT states on its website that it “constantly evaluat how to manage these spaces in a manner that benefits motorists, business owners, and most importantly residents in a fair and balanced approach”; in 2010, it enforced major changes in the District’s parking meter system, which affected parking meter rates as well as days and hours of enforcement. For details on these regulations, visit DDOT’s official page on parking meters. Washington, D.C. has had a Residential Permit Parking (RPP) program in place since the 1970s and more than 4,100 blocks are designated as RPP zones. For details, visit DDOT’s page on D.C.’s RPP program. Public parking in Washington, D.C. can be expensive. Long-term parking options are limited, but there are a few alternative parking lots that will save you some money. Disability Parking The District has several programs intended to ensure on-street parking is accessible to residents and visitors with disabilities. Residents with disabilities who live in a single family dwelling and meet certain other requirements can apply to have an on street parking space reserved for them. Parking Lots There are plenty of garage parking options available in and around the downtown area in the city. One may choose to park in a garage if the parking requirement is for more than just an hour or two. Parking Garages are highly suitable for both short and long term parking requirements. Since Washington, D.C. is a very busy place, it may be better to reserve parking space–or at the very least, to make parking plans–in advance. Parking in the garages and lots across the city and the downtown is a viable option especially for long-term and monthly parking requirements. Best Parking helps you choose the best suitable parking facility for off-street parking via an interactive map. You can choose by: Neighborhood, Address, Cross Street, Attraction.
