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.

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 entirely 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 stays for multiple days, they must change the guest pass daily with the current date visible.
