How Does a Street get RPP Designation?
The Traffic Engineer’s Office has designated 14 RPP permit zones for City of Berkeley neighborhoods. Please view the Berkeley RPP Zone Map to see if your street is with in a designated zone. Streets within a designated RPP zone can opt into the program by petitioning the Traffic Engineer with at least 51% of the residential addresses signing an official City of Berkeley RPP petition form. A parking survey will be conducted to assess whether parking congestion exceeds 75% of the available spaces in the area. Council approval is necessary to revise the streets included in the RPP program.
Some areas within RPP zone E are enforced Monday-Friday. Others are enforced Monday through Saturday. Please observe posted enforcement signs.
How do I know if my street has already opted into the program?
The following Berkeley RPP maps show all residential parcels on the streets that have opted into the program. If your parcel is highlighted in the map, you are currently eligible to purchase a permit for that zone.
