Residential Parking

Residents of a controlled residential parking area are eligible to receive one (1) residential parking decal for each vehicle operated by each resident.  Vehicles used for nonresidents, commuting, or for storage do not qualify for a parking permit.  For more information or to apply for a residential parking sticker, call (252) 329-4884.

The City of Greenville prohibits the parking of vehicles in the yard, otherwise referred to as "Parking on an Unimproved Surface."  You will be fined a nominal fee for parking your vehicle in an area that is not a designated driveway.  For more information, call (252) 329-4884.

E-Tag Permits

E-tag parking permits are intended for downtown, residential use and business employees in the uptown district. In a commercial permit parking district, on -street parking is prohibited during certain hours, except for vehicles displaying valid permits. Vehicles not displaying a valid permit will be issued a parking citation. To download an application, click here.

Parking Fines

Parking fines are a method of ensuring authorized parking so that those who need access to parking will have a better opportunity to obtain it.  These fines are issued on the basis of the manner by which a vehicle is parked, whether illegally parked or parking overtime in a time specific zone. 

The City of Greenville employs two full time and four part-time Parking Enforcement Officers to enforce the City's parking codes throughout the downtown and residential areas of Greenville's city limits.  These enforcement officers issue parking tickets and enforce parking regulations.

If your vehicle is towed, all fines and penalties must be paid to retrieve your vehicle.

Passport Parking App

The City of Greenville utilizes the Passport Parking app to help make paying for metered parking easier for drivers. Passport allows secure payments using a debit or credit card and enables users to monitor parking, extend parking remotely, and view parking history.
