Parking Guidelines

 

Ending A Trip & Parking

 

Where can I end my trip and park?

You can end your trip in any regular on-street parking space in the Home Area.

Regular on-street parking spaces

You can park anywhere inside the Home Area for free as long as the spot is legal. You cannot park in spots designated for another use (For example: commercial vehicle load zones, truck load and unload, food-vehicle zones, reserved electric car spaces or disabled parking zones, etc.).

Special parking spaces

You can park in metered spots, or spots with time limits of at least 1 hour or more. You can park in Seattle’s Restricted Parking Zones (RPZs) within the Home Area. You don’t need a special permit.

Private facilities, but not permanently

While it’s okay to park temporarily in a private lot, you are responsible for any private parking charges and you cannot end a trip there. You must return to a sanctioned spot within the Home Area.

Brooklyn Street Parking

You can park your ReachNow vehicle anywhere you find a legal street parking spot within the Home Area. On streets with 1, 2, or 4-day-a-week street sweeping, avoid parking within 12 hours of the scheduled cleaning to avoid tickets. Members are responsible for any fines or fees resulting from improperly parked vehicles.

SeaTac Airport – WallyPark Premier Garage, 18613 International Blvd, Seatac WA 98188

Where can I NOT park?

 

Parking spaces specified for special use

You cannot park and end a trip in valet zones, bus zones, commercial vehicle load zones, customer service zones or reserved disabled parking. You cannot park in spaces marked “car share vehicles only.” You cannot park in temporary no parking zones that occur within 24 hours of the time you park.

Private off-street parking

You cannot park and end a trip in private, off-street parking like a driveway, garage, office building, mall or apartment complex.

Parking spaces with short time limits

You cannot park in spaces with time limits of less that 1 hour.

Fire Hydrants

No parking within 15 feet of either side of a fire hydrant.

Rush hour and bus-only lanes (sometimes)

Some lanes convert from parking to traffic lanes during peak hour (7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m.). Other lanes convert from parking to bus-only lanes at set times. You cannot park in special lanes like this due to the risk of towing. We allow ONE EXCEPTION ONLY IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE: If the lane will not convert within 1 hour for the following area: bordered by I-5 to the east, Alaskan Way to the west, Stewart St. to the north and Yesler Way to the south). For example, in this Downtown area you can park in a 4-6 p.m. peak hour lane at 2:30 p.m., but you cannot park there at 3:30 p.m. because it will convert in less than 1 hour.

Seattle – Parking distances

In Seattle, you must obey the following parking distances: 5 feet from driveways, 15 feet from fire hydrants, 20 feet from crosswalks, and 30 feet from Stop or Yield signs. Please pay attention to avoid any yellow or red painted curbs.

Brooklyn – Metered Spaces

Parking meters, both traditional and pay-and-display, throughout our home area are restricted from ending your trip. You may park at meters throughout Brooklyn (and even outside of the home area) while using park time in an active rental, but you are responsible for paying the meter cost.

Portland – Special Entertainment District

Between 10:00pm and 3:00pm on Fridays, Saturdays and sepcific major holidays, the following streets will be closed to all vehicular traffic.:

  • NW 3rd Ave from W Burnside to NW Everett
  • NW Couch from NW 2nd Ave to NW 4th Ave
  • NW Davis from NW 2nd Ave to NW 4th Ave

Other Restrictions

Areas where you wouldn’t be able to park you own private vehicle. If it would result in a ticket or tow within 12 hours of parking there, you are responsible for the ticket or tow. If it would always result in a ticket or tow, you are responsible for the ticket or tow. There can include, but are not limited to, Temporary No Parking Areas, Bus Stops, Disabled Spaces (w/out a valid, displayed permit), Taxi Parking, Any Private Parking Lot or Driveway, etc.
