Residential Permits: August 13th Update
We've transitioned to a different online permit system!
Two years ago, we did away with physical parking permits and launched an online, digital permit system. Since then, we've learned a lot about what works for our customers. In an effort to continue to improve the online permit process, we have transitioned to a new permit platform, AIMS Parking. AIMS features a user-friendly interface, easy-to-navigate account tools, and extensive support services. Permits are still digital, and we will continue to use license plate recognition to identify valid permit holders. Physical permits are no longer issued.
Residential Permits are now issued at: https://eugene.aimsparking.com/
You will not longer be able to purchase residential permits in The Permit Portal (IPS).
Current Residential Parking Permit Customers:
We've already transferred your account information from IPS to AIMS. You will not need to re-register in AIMS. When you log in for the first time, you will just need to create a new password. After that, you can apply for your new residential permit.
Step 2: Order A New Residential Permit
Per City Admin Order, we will verify eligibility based on your Proof of Residency, Photo ID, and Vehicle Registration. You will need to upload all three of these documents with every application. We allow one vehicle per permit.
New Residential Parking Permit Customers:
If you are a new customer, please register an account at https://eugene.aimsparking.com/. After registering, you will be able to apply for a new residential parking permit. You will only be shown permit types that are available in your residential zone.

Renters permits in Zones B, C, and H are issued on a quarterly cycle. The current quarter ends on September 30th. If you need your permit to begin before October 1, you must submit two online applications via your account at https://eugene.aimsparking.com/.
Your first application should be submitted for the JUL-AUG-SEP quarter, and will be prorated. Your second application should be for the OCT-NOV-DEC quarter and will be full price. You will need to upload your required documents with each application. Renter's quarterly permits need to be reapplied for each quarter.
Please note: A picture of your vehicle does not meet the documentation requirements for your application (see below). Applicants who only upload a picture of a vehicle will have their application rejected.
