With the massive growth in Portland over the last several years, parking has become quite the issue throughout the inner city. Some neighborhoods have been zoned for permit parking, some areas only offer metered/hourly and a few still offer free neighborhood street parking. Many apartment communities offer some type of parking garage or lot that residents can lease for a premium, but many offer no parking at all. It is also important to note that just because an apartment building offers said parking, does not necessarily mean they have any available. If you own a vehicle, it is imperative that you not only confirm your prospective buildings parking options, but that they have spaces available. Below are different types of parking options and associated fees
Garage/Off Street Parking- Can range from $100-$200 per month per vehicle. This varies greatly depending on the neighborhood in which the apartment building is located.
Neighborhood City Zoned Parking – Fee based annual parking permit obtained fromPortland Bureau of Transportation to park in specifiedzoned areas. Must provide ID and lease with proof that you live or work in the neighborhood zone for which you are trying to obtain a permit.
No parking options other than what your apartment building offers-This applies mainly to The Pearl, Downtown, South Waterfront and Central East Side Industrial District which are all metered and hourly parking. Very little long-term parking is available except for public daily lots in these areas. Refer to Garage Parking rates.
Free Neighborhood Street Parking- once you push out far enough from the inner-city core (approximately 2-3 miles) into the more suburban areas of inner city Portland, you will find many neighborhoods that still have street parking for free. Be prepared to walk a good distance from your parking spot to your front door.
If you are relocating to Portland and can live without a car (which is very easy in Portland), leave it behind! With local options to get around likeZip Car, Uber, Radiocab, The Max, Portland Street Car, Biketown and great walkability/bikeability,you can get anywhere you need to go quickly and easily without owning a vehicle. .
