Monthly Parking Permits

Customers may purchase monthly permits for designated parking garages or surface parking lots. Permits may be garage Key Cards, decals or tag based electronic permits. Monthly permits must be renewed by the 25th of each month. Please note that the number of permits sold is based on the number of parking spaces available. In many lots and areas, a waiting list exists. If you do not renew your permit by the last day of the month, there is a risk of your space being sold to the next person on the waiting list. To avoid a lapse, we encourage customers to enroll in automatic billing to a credit card.

Downtown Residential Parking Permits

ParkDurham offers monthly parking permits for downtown residents in the City’s parking garages and select surface parking lots. Proof of residency and vehicle registration will be required for eligibility.

Motorcycle Parking

Motorcycle Parking is only offered in the Chapel Hill parking garage at a rate of $50 per month.

The motorcycle's tag number is the parking credential and it is not be transferable. There will be a designated area in the garage for motorcycle parking only to facilitate the enforcement of this program. Enforcement personnel will verify that the tag number is valid for the current month and that the motorcycle is parked in the appropriate location. All motorcycles parked outside of the designated motorcycle parking area, registered or not, will be cited.
