Austin’s Residential Permit Parking Program is an initiative designed to give residents a better chance of finding an on-street parking space in their neighborhood.

The purpose of the Residential Permit Parking (RPP) Program is to help ease the impacts to neighborhoods from non-residential parking along streets adjacent to commercial properties. The desired outcome of RPP is to increase the amount of on-street parking available to residents and their guests while balancing the needs of others who desire to park along the street.
