New Monthly Parking Permit Process

Customers can purchase monthly parking permits online at (preferred) or in the Customer Service and Sales Center at 1225 R Street (adjacent to the 13th Street light rail station).

Effective March 2017, RT will no longer issue hang tags for monthly parking permits for RT park-pay-and-ride lots (with the exception of the Cosumnes River College (CRC) parking structure please see below). Proof of payment for monthly parking permits will be checked by the license plate number of the vehicle.

In order for RT to operate more efficiently, we have partnered with the City of Sacramento to enforce parking at all of RTs paid parking lots, which includes Watt/I-80, Watt/I-80 West, Roseville Road, Power Inn, Franklin, Meadowview and Florin light rail stations. Enforcement will be provided through City vehicles with mounted cameras that will patrol the parking lots. This is why hang tags are no longer an option.

When purchasing a monthly parking permit online, customers will enter their license plate number. This will enter the vehicle into the system, showing that it can validly be parked in RTs park-pay-and-ride lots. Up to two license plate numbers can be entered in the system, but only one car can be parked in an RT paid lot at a time.


If a customer purchases their parking permit in person at the Customer Service and Sales Center, located at 1225 R Street, he/she will need to provide the license plate number to the customer service representative.

If no license plate number is available, customers need to enter the last four digits of the VIN (located at the base of the front windshield).

Park-and-ride lot users using the CRC parking structure need to purchase a hang tag for $20 to be placed on the rearview mirror, and can enter their license plate number to park in all other RT lots. The CRC parking permit hang tag can also be purchased either online or at the Customer Service and Sales Center.

If ordering online, RT recommends purchasing 7 to 10 days before the start of the new month to allow for processing time.
