There are three types of visitor parking permits that can be used to provide temporary Residential Permit Parking (RPP) privileges:

- Additionally, ANC areas in Ward 2 may be added into the annual visitor parking pass (VPP) program if:
- The ANC, by resolution, votes to request that DDOT add the ANC area to the annual VPP program area; and
- DDOT adds the ANC area to the annual VPP program by rulemaking.
- Each housing unit located on a residential permit parking block (or any block in Ward 1), shall be eligible to receive one (1) annual visitor parking pass.
- Each annual visitor parking pass shall:
- Authorize a person using the pass to park a vehicle only in the ANC area designated on the pass; and
- Be valud during a single calendar year (from January 1 through December 31).
