Residential Zone Parking FAQs

Chicago residents living within an established Residential Parking Zone may be eligible to include a Zone Number on their City Sticker and/or purchase Chicago residential Parking Daily Permits, which are guest passes that are valid for 24 hours upon the date and time of display. Buy at an additional cost of $25 per year (prorated for varying durations). Upon paying to add a zone, the Zone number that corresponds with the signs on your street will appear at the top of your City Sticker. If the word NONE appears on your vehicle sticker, you do not have a Residential Parking Zone on your sticker. 

The following restrictions apply: 

  • Residents purchasing Residential Zone Parking for their Chicago City Vehicle Sticker must reside at a Chicago address within a designated residential parking zone, which must be demonstrated by proof of address. 
  • The Residential Zone Parking Permit expires at the same time as the City Vehicle Sticker on which it was printed. 
  • The Office of the City Clerk reserves the right to deny sale of the zone parking permit if it is determined the purchaser has attempted to violate the rules regulating the Chicago Residential Zone Parking Permit.
