Street Parking while out on vacation? How do I deal with street cleaning? Am I SOL? - March 23, 2016, 11:31 AM

Hi all,

I am wondering how are we supposed to comply the street cleaning parking rules when being out on a vacation?

I currently live in an apartment and both my wife/I use the street parking to park our vehicles. We are going on a 10 day vacation soon and this got me wondering how am I supposed to comply with the street cleaning parking when I am gone? Is there a special permit or some kind of waiver? I could not find any answers on google and thought maybe you guys would be able to help.

Right now I am thinking about parking our vehicles at my wife's workplace at Gallaudet University.

Thanks in advance

I went through this a few months ago and figured out that most main streets don't have street cleaning. In my case I was able to park on 14th street without moving my bike.

Move them to a street that doesn't get cleaned. Pretty much your only free option.


Then again... That's just me.

No such article exists in DC. A no regs street in DC also increasingly difficult to find.

I used to go to a Metro parking lot that allows multi-day parking and leave it there. If you pick them up on a weekend you'll pay no parking fees. (Free exit on the weekends).

Otherwise it's $5-6 for the entire term. Best deal going in DC.

Here's the Wmata line at Greenbelt for ex

Multi-day parking: Between 15 and 17 spaces are allocated for multi-day use of up to 10 days. Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no charge for multi-day parking beyond the regular fee. Access Multi-day parking by entering the parking lot through the Cherrywood Lane entrance and following signs to the spaces. Park in spaces signed "multi-day parking."
