    Portsmouth Parking Shuttle Returning Friday, May 25th

    The 2018 season of Portsmouth's parking shuttle will begin on Friday, May 25th and continue through Labor Day Weekend. This shuttle allows for easy parking at the Connect Community Church's parking lot off Market Street, and quick transportation to the downtown at the Hanover Street bus stop - all free of charge. The shuttle returns to the Hanover stop every ten minutes to bring people back to their vehicles. 

    I am a resident with a valid ADA (handicap) permit. Do I need an NPP registration to park on the street in my neighborhood?

    Yes. NH State Ordinance provides that residents with ADA status shall have their fee waived.  Proof of residency must still be provided (see ‘How can I apply for a permit?’) along with a copy of your valid ADA (handicap) permit.

    I maintain two homes. Can I register a vehicle?

    Yes. You must provide a copy of the vehicle registration showing the vehicle is registered to you, and proof that the single-family residence within the RPP District is your primary residence. (i.e.) where you are registered to vote.

    How can I be sure that the City will enforce the NPP regulations?

    When an NPP program is implemented, a Parking Enforcement Officer would be assigned to patrol the NPP District. Officers will apply appropriate enforcement protocols for vehicles that violate posted restrictions. The Dispatch Office can be reached at 603.766.7000, extension 7.

    What if I am expecting guests for an event at my home?

    On a case-by-case basis, and after consideration of traffic impact, safety and other relevant factors, the Parking Division may grant an exemption from parking restrictions for special events organized by residents participating in an NPP (must have an NPP-registered vehicle for the current calendar year and submit a completed Exemption Request form-subject to approval).
