City of Milwaukee residents who wish to park their vehicles overnight on City streets can buy their 2018
annual virtual parking permits and 4-month, first trimester permits beginning Wednesday, December 20, 2017.

When residents buy the annual or 4-month overnight permit, there is no physical sticker for their vehicles.

Instead, customers will receive a confirmation number, and their license plate becomes their permit.

Parking Ambassadors scan the license plates of cars parked overnight on City streets to determine if a valid parking permit has been purchased.
