DGS provides parking allocations to all state agencies at the seat of government. Agencies are then responsible for assigning parking to their employees based on their own policies and the DGS Policies and Procedures for the Use of Parking Facilities.

Employees should work directly with their agency Parking Coordinator to request parking and complete the necessary forms. If parking is not available, the employee may be placed on a waiting list.

The monthly parking rate is $49 and the daily parking rate is $4. The monthly parking rate for those who work outside of downtown Richmond is $24.50.

Agencies are responsible for assigning employee parking. Each agency determines its own policy for the assignment of its allocated spaces. Contact your agency Parking Coordinator for additional details.

Employees who have been issued disabled parking placards and/or plates by the Department of Motor Vehicles are entitled to request a DGS disabled parking permit from their agency Parking Coordinator. DGS issues disabled parking permits to ensure a sufficient number of spaces are made available in DGS parking facilities for parkers in need of disabled parking. As such, those who are issued DGS disabled parking permits are reminded to utilize the designated handicapped parking spaces as these have been allocated and dedicated for their use.

To request a DGS disabled parking permit, employees must provide a copy of the disabled placard issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles or their vehicle registration showing the DMV disabled license plates to DGS Parking Services. All vehicles using parking spaces that have been designated as disabled parking must display a Department of Motor Vehicles-issued disabled placard or disabled license plates as well as a DGS-issued disabled hangtag permit.

If a parking permit is lost or stolen a replacement fee of $15 will be charged. The assignee must apply for a replacement permit by notifying their agency Parking Coordinator, completing a parking request form for a replacement permit, and paying a replacement fee. The fee shall be paid to the DGS Parking Services by check or money order made payable to the Treasurer of Virginia.

If broken, the permit along with a completed DGS Parking Request Form must be submitted to DGS Parking Services to receive a replacement permit. The replacement permit will be issued at no charge provided the permit number can be identified.
