Park It 

Park It parking locationsCharlotte's Park It program manages on-street parking throughout Uptown, South End, Elizabeth, NoDa and Commonwealth Avenue in Plaza Midwood. Access to the area's many restaurants, clubs, museums and government buildings is more convenient than ever. With 1,200 metered spaces in Uptown and South End, visitors can enjoy short-term, inexpensive parking while they shop, dine and conduct business.  Parking rates at on-street meters and pay stations are $1.00 per hour.

All vehicles parked in metered parking spaces are required to pay the meter or pay station for the corresponding time the vehicle occupies the space. This requirement also applies to City, County and other Government fleet vehicles, unless otherwise permitted. All CDOT-issued Right of Way Use permits must be displayed on the front dash.

The Park It On-street Parking Program is a Charlotte Department of Transportation turnkey operation outsourced to Republic Parking

Online Permit Portal FAQs





​If you are a current residential permit holder or looking to purchase a 2020 permit, they will be available starting October 1, 2020, on Charlotte Permits Passport Portal.

​You are still REQUIRED to display your physical 2019 permit until the cut-off deadline of October 31, 2020, or until you obtain your new, digital online permit. For 2020 permits, we are switching to a digital system that recognizes the license plate(s) tied to your account, and therefore will not require you to display a physical permit.

​​The cost will be $30.00 plus a $3.50 processing fee charged by a third-party vendor.
