|(Washington, DC) – The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is launching a public information campaign for the new Red Top Meter Parking program in the Central Business District (CBD). The campaign will include traditional and social media, stakeholder meetings and an informational meeting with the public.
Red Top Meters will be available for the exclusive use of qualified disability placard and license plate holders. Under the program, DDOT will activate approximately 350 Red Top Meter parking spaces in the CBD.
The CBD includes areas south of Massachusetts Avenue, east of 23rd Street NW and west of 2nd Street NE. Red Top Meter users must pay for the reserved spaces, but the meters allow additional time to park (up to 4 hours). The goal of the program is to ensure on-street metered parking is accessible to all District residents and visitors.
Outside the CBD, disability placard and license plate holders may park at metered spaces for up to twice the time posted on the meter without payment. The public will be notified before enforcement of Red Top Meter violations begins.
