Parking Permits

The Jack London neighborhood participates in the City of Oakland Residential and Merchant Parking Permit program and is included in Area M. Vehicles displaying the M permit are able to park in this area beyond the posted time limits. Parking permits are issued to a vehicle registered to an eligible address, not to a person. Businesses can also apply for parking permits, either for the business vehicles or on behalf of their employees.

- Parking Permits are valid for 12 months and expire on June 30th annually.

- There is no limit to the number of residential permits that will be issued per address in Area M.

- Merchant permits are limited to either 2 stickers or 1 transferable permit

 

How to Get an Area M Parking Permit

  • Complete the application: Click here to download the application
  • Provide the qualifying documents (name and address on application must match those on the documents):
    • Current vehicle registration
    • Current California identification
    • Current utility bill (a gas, electric, water or garbage bill issued within the last 30 days) at address where permit is requested
    • Current rental or lease agreement at address where permit is requested (if you are the property owner, please provide documentation demonstrating ownership such as mortgage statement, property tax bill or deed. You can redact all financial related information.)
    • For Merchant permits: A copy of the current business license, applicant's driver license and current California vehicle registration must accompany the completed application.

 

Visitor Permits (1-day and 2-week temporary permits for visitors)

Residents may purchase temporary permits for visitors. Visitor permits are hanging permits valid for one day or two weeks. A resident may purchase up to five of both on any calendar day.

 

New Vehicle Permits (90-day temporary permit for new vehicles without a permanent license plate)

A New Vehicle Permit is a hanging temporary permit valid for 90 days and issued to a new vehicle that does not yet have permanent license plates. Once California license plates have been issued, the New Vehicle Permit must be exchanged for an annual bumper sticker. There is no fee for the exchange, although the fees for a temporary is equal the fee for the regular permit.

The City of Oakland requires that all delinquent parking tickets be cleared (paid or adjudicated) prior to issuance of any permit for a particular vehicle. To obtain citation information or pay your citation, call (800) 500-6484 or click here to go to the online payment system.
