Programs

Park ​It!

​Charlotte's Park It! program has more than 1100 onstreet parking spaces throughout the Center City area. Access to the area's many restaurants, clubs, museums and government buildings is more convenient than ever. The onstreet spaces offer visitors short-term, inexpensive parking while they shop, dine and conduct business. 

The Park It! Onstreet Parking Program is a Charlotte Department of Transportation turnkey operation outsourced to Republic Parking.

Residential Parking Permit Program

The City of Charlotte has several parking permit districts which only allow parking onstreet at specified hours with a vehicle parking decal. The areas currently participating in the program are First Ward, Third Ward, Fourth Ward, Perrin Place, Hastings Drive, Bucknell Avenue, Wellesley Avenue, and Glendale Road in Myers Park.
