Who qualifies for a general street exemption? General street exemptions will only be issued to schools and churches that do not have sufficient nearby parking available to them. Any other organization or individual requesting a general street exemption from the posted time restrictions should visit a TODPEK and purchase temporary daytime parking exemptions for their guests. To purchase Temporary Daytime Parking exemptions in bulk, please visit the Parking Office located at 221 E. Walnut St., Suite 199, Pasadena, CA 91101.

You must obey all other posted and applicable parking restrictions.
