    If I use 2 vehicles to uber with and my wife drives also do we need to buy for permits

    Uber driver asked 3 months ago

    DLS hang tags are interchangeable between vehicles, as long as all VIN numbers are provided at time of purchase. You must display a DLS hang tag in the vehicle to utilize the Main Street drop and load zones. Based on your explanation, it sounds like you only drive two vehicles at a time, so you may only need to purchase two DLS tags.

    Why are there no DLS zones on the west side of Main? I've stopped in the proper DLS zones and had to call my passengers to the East side of the road. I feel like this places the public at risk of getting struck by a vehicle. I've witnessed several close calls. Can we please get a few zones on the west side. Thank you.

    Michaelamckee13 asked 4 months ago

    The placement of DLS zones on the east side was intentional to help facilitate traffic flow northbound (down) out of Old Town. Staff is currently assessing DLS utilization and need, and you will likely see some changes to the program and drop and load locations in the future. In addition to possibly adding some west side locations, staff is looking at better marked pedestrian crossings too.

    A posted response to a question here contradicts what you state on your FAQ page. On the FAQ page you state "If there are available parking spaces outside these zones, can I pull in there? Yes, the current parking enforcement best practice is a short drop and load allowance. Anyone in a paid parking spot for more than a few minutes can expect a parking ticket." Yet on here you stated: "you are not permitted to pick up or drop off on Main Street without a DLS permit. If you do, you risk getting...a parking ticket for picking up in a paid parking stall if you did not pay for parking." So, which is it? Also, what is the city ordinance(s) governing this, so that I can review the actual law? Thanks.

    meesterneeks asked 5 months ago

    Thanks for reaching out. Sorry for any confusion. We are leaving enforcement up to the discretion of Police and Parking staff. Our intent is to stop double parking on Main Street, so if that means there is space to pull curbside outside of a zone, then we will likely allow it. If it is during a peak time of day, and that parking is in high demand, then drivers may be asked to move along or could receive a parking ticket for staging in an unauthorized zone. Park City Municipal Code 9-5-3 discusses parking permit types; Code 9-5-9 includes parking signage, Code 9-5-10 covers violations of the parking code. Double parking is considered a moving violation and tickets can be issued per state (12.56.420)and local code. Ultimately we want to work with those interested in helping the city meet their congestion and safety goals and who opt into the program; the intent is not to punish permit holders.

    I’m a LYFT driver and I bought DLS permit. I think it was the best waste of money I ever made. First of all, it’s almost impossible for me to make pick up or drop off of a passenger in the designated DLS areas, because the taxi are staging there with hours, probably sleeping in the cars, waiting for riders. Second, there are many cars without DLS permit parked in the DLS areas with hours and very rarely they get parking violence ticket. Even if they get ticket, how is that helping me to pick up or drop off my passengers? You need to start towing them ASAP when they are parked in the DLS zones. And, if you want to make money, next time invent something smarter, because this is not fair and the traffic on Main is even worse now with these new rules.

    Marjan asked 4 months ago

    Sorry for your frustration. DLS permit holders are allowed to stage at the Post Office location, so you may see taxis and other drivers waiting there. We are staffing the other drop and load locations with people during peak times to tell drivers to move along, so sleeping in cars is likely not happening. Enforcement will be much stronger after Sundance, we wanted to give drivers time to learn the program before issuing many tickets.

    To: Alexis Verson I don't intend to get a parking permit, I'm a Lyft driver, I read in depth about this permit and I thought I couldn't pick up directly on main street without a permit. The Lyft message says Park City is now requiring a permit to pick up or drop off passengers on Main Street between 5 pm and midnight. No need to purchase a permit if you avoid this area. (Then offers more info if you click somewhere on the app) NOTE: this will not apply during Sundance (If Lyft should rewright that statement please let them and me know) Does these mean I can pick up passengers on main street from midnight to 5 pm? I don't think I can do this. I thought I could do these things without a permit Passenger staging any hr at Bob Wells Plaza And Passenger staging from 10 pm to 5 pm at 9th street turn around Swede parallel parking Brewpub lot From Ben Gauthier

    asked 5 months ago

    It is correct that you are not permitted to pick up or drop off on Main Street without a DLS permit. If you do, you risk getting a moving violation if you double park in the street, or a parking ticket for picking up in a DLS zone without a permit, or picking up in a paid parking stall if you did not pay for parking. You can use the free drop, load, and staging areas you mentioned to pick up and drop off without a permit. The DLS permit program does not apply during Sundance.


  • Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    On the main webpage it states "permit is not valid during major events". This means no DSL permit required during those events? I assume Sundance would qualify. Probably to late to ask, but does NYE (tonight) qualify as well? Will there be a list of these major events where no permit is required?

    Driver Mark asked 5 months ago

    The DLS program will not be utilized during Sundance, as all of Main Street becomes a drop and load-only zone during the festival. The City is considering other incentives for permit holders during the Festival, and will provide that info as it becomes available. Staff is currently evaluating the program to determine what other, if any, major events will temporarily alter the DLS permit program. Thank you.

    So what happens if you pick up a passenger in salt lake going to one of those areas?

    Rzslc asked 5 months ago

    If you intend to purchase a DLS permit you can communicate to your passengers that there are designated drop and load zones you must use as required by the City (but that are likely very close to their destination), otherwise if you do not intend to purchase a permit, you can utilize the free drop and load areas on Swede Alley

  • Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    I don’t go to Park city often and have no idea where these free areas are. Is lyft going to give me directions to these since I don’t know Main Street Park city or do I have to learn them myself while driving up the interstate?

    Rzslc asked 5 months ago

    At this time, Lyft has not programmed the drop and load zones into the app to make the program understandable to drivers and riders. We suggest reaching out to them directly to request these zones get added to help you provide better service. We would suggest familiarizing yourself with the drop and load areas if you intend to serve riders in this area. Please find a map in the project overview section of this page. The permitted drop and load zones on Main Street are well-signed and plentiful, and you will likely be able to drop your customer very close to their destination. If you do not intend to get a DLS permit, it may be best to communicate with riders that you can utilize the free drop and load zones on Swede Alley and get them near their destination.

    Hello this is just some feedback about the program. I'm a rideshare driver and I'm already seeing improvement in flow on main street. But I think stricter enforcement is needed. Right now you have lots of people bragging that they just pull into an empty parking spot on main street with zero repercussions. Also see plenty of drivers stopping in random spots on Swede alley. If other drivers are able to get away with not buying a permit and just stopping illegally it'll discourage the rest of us from buying a permit. Also as soon as midnight hits it seems as though enforcement of the no double parking reduces significantly. When the bars close traffic gets backed up horribly. I think this could be alleviated if the DLS zones remain no parking and available for active loading until 2 am. Like I said I think this is a great idea but if it fails it'll be a lot harder to implement anything similar again in the future.

    E asked 5 months ago

    Thank you for the thoughtful feedback. We agree that in order to have a successful program, we will need to make sure the zones are well staffed. Enforcement has already started, however, the City intends to increase that significantly after Sundance. We hope that enforcement and ticketing will help incentive drivers and companies to purchase a permit and not abuse the program.


  • Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    To your point in response to another persons question: Again, the biggest problem is double parking, so if companies help us alleviate that, we are also going to use common sense in enforcement. If that is true, then the suggestion to have the downside of the street be no parking during those hours - and DLS only on the downside - would eliminate it and be a much simpler solution which makes it easier to communicate to all who are impacted by this change. i.e. It will allow for easy communication to guests/tourists as well as those driving to main street during those hours. You could also make the Pedestrian crossing areas more obvious, so that people aren't jaywalking all the time.

    Pam asked 5 months ago

    Thank you for the feedback. Your suggestion would allow for a simpler program ultimately, and something we will continue to explore in the future as we determine what success looks like for the drop & load program. The existing drop and load zones were carefully agreed upon in partnership with the Main Street businesses and Park City Historic Alliance. It’s possible in the future we can continue to expand the zones and restrict parking. We have also heard other feedback on pedestrian crossings, and it’s something we plan to explore and implement once the weather allows for paint to adhere to the road.

    Which MENSA member came up with this? This is only causing more problems. Problems for facilities catering to their customers logistical needs by limiting their travel. PC is expensive and many of us justify the cost by the exemplary service provided. You’ve just devalued part of this service. Problems for families that have disabled members that require door to door service. Problems for families that have little ones and aren’t mobile. As a result we’ll rent cars so we can provide our families door to door service which acts contradictory to your goal of reducing the number of vehicles. Problems for drivers that provide this high level of service and now stress over having to say no. I heard this exact sentiment from a driver this evening who was contemplating leaving a long term job with one of the premier facilities in town. Wow. Your plan is fundamentally flawed. By not limiting the number of permits, every driver can have one and you haven’t limited the number of vehicles. As a result all you’ve done is limit the use of Main which will make traffic less efficient. All you’ve done is decrease service and efficiency. Oh wait, that’s not quite right. You’ve increased revenue, haven’t you? Look, I understand you thought this would help. You need to get cars off Main. Eliminate parking on Main during peaks. That will push parking to paid garages and open two lanes each way. If necessary institute a surcharge for Uber/Lyft for every Main Street destination to be passed on to the rider. Or if you just want more revenue, raise the hotel tax. Humbly submitted, Brad King Official US Taxpayer

    Brad asked 5 months ago

    Thanks for your input on the new program, Mr. King. We have modeled this drop and load program after many other cities that are successfully working to mitigate traffic congestion in their commercial zones. To clarify, this program does not apply to delivery vehicles serving Main Street – only to ground transportation providers moving people. ADA needs and service will not be interrupted as a result of the new drop and load zones, and discretion is used in enforcement and education. We are interested in monitoring the drop and load pilot program for the next several months, and will then determine if it successful at meeting our City goals of reducing double parking, relieving congestion, and allowing access for emergency vehicles. Your suggestion of eliminating parking all together as been discussed as a heavier handed approach, which we may consider in the future. The cost of the drop and load permit does not cover the cost to implement the program, as we lose revenue from removing paid parking stalls, and hired additional staff to help facilitate a safer environment on Main Street. The goal is a safer town for all to access and enjoy, the program is not acting as a revenue stream. Thank you again for your feedback.


  • Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    One major cause of congestion is the parking spaces themselves. Cars trying to parallel park can block traffic for several minutes. I think these individual dropoff/loading zones are too small. My suggestion would be to create 6 drop off/loading zones, 3 on each side of the street. But make them large enough so it's easy to pull in and out, as well as pull forward to the first spot. I suggest 3 parking spaces for each zone, so you would be taking 18 parking spaces and creating 6 drop off/loading zones. And let anyone use them, even private cars which would encourage them to drop off and then park at China Bridge. In addition to safety and increased traffic flow, you also want to make the experience as positive as possible for the patrons who are spending large sums of money.

    Eggplant asked 5 months ago

    Thanks so much for this feedback, it is very constructive and thoughtful. We will take this back to the project team for consideration. We have heard from several people that adding Drop and Load areas on the other side of Main would be beneficial. Our original intent was to help facilitate traffic to flow down Main Street by putting the zones all on the east side. However, we are beginning to reach out to businesses and consider having something near OShucks or No Name, just due to the high demand.

    Why doesn't the trolly have to use the pick up and drop off zones? I watch traffic get backed up all day and night as the trolly stops in the middle of the street to drop off and pick up. Seems a bit odd and causes back ups daily.

    Jared McMillen asked 5 months ago

    At this time, the drop and load permit program is for ground transportation vehicles only. The Trolley offers a different convenient alternative for those who want to access Main Street via public transit.

  • Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    Two questions one can we print out this map or get a bigger map of the layout so we can familiarize eyes ourselves where the free drop-off and pick-up zones are in Park City? And where does permit attached on our car? I just picked up a passenger not at one of the special locations that require a permit in a park city vehicle started flashing their lights at me that I shouldn't be there in luckily the passenger was right there at the same time and got in and then they turned off their lights. So it seems like there is no recognition even if the place is not one of the ones mentioned in your list. The address was 305 Main. Firewood ( something like that I can't remember it as I don't have access now to that pickup spot. Nevertheless it's not in you list.

    Blayde asked 5 months ago

    We are happy to offer a larger map for you, please email alexis.verson@parkcity.org. The permit is a hang tag for your rear view mirror and must be displayed when using DLS zones on Main Street. Officers are enforcing double parking (if you stop to pick someone up without pulling to the curb), and also if you are using paid parking stalls to pick passengers up and not a DLS zone, you will be asked to move along. Thank you.

    Do I need a permit just to pick up and drop off passengers as a rideshare driver or only if I want to park/wait there? It would take almost a month's worth of profits to pay thw city $200 and I'm actually assisting Park City visitors/patrons. Are there payment plans? It seems that I can no longer drive in Park City. ?!?!?!? Are the local yokel transportation companies really paying someone at the city office under the table that much to go to these silly lengths? I'm an intelligent person, but have no idea what I'm supposed to do as a rideshare driver.

    Stevieboo asked 5 months ago

    Hello. If you want to pick up passengers on Main Street, you will need a DLS permit. Otherwise you could get a parking ticket for using a zone without a permit or a moving violation if you double park on Main Street. If you do not want to opt into the paid permit program, the City is offering free drop, load, and staging areas nearby. On the map: the green zones (at the top and bottom of Main Street), and red/orange zones (on Swede Alley) can be used without a permit to pick up and drop off passengers. The other benefit of a DLS permit is that it allows you to stage on Main Street after 10pm in any paid parking stall to wait for rides. Approximately 15-20% of permit holders at this time are rideshare drivers. Thank you.

    There are free drop off areas on Swede Alley (very close to Main Street) that you can use to drop off your passengers, you will not need a DLS permit to do so. The red, orange, and green areas on the map indicate the free drop off and pick up areas.

    What happens if we have riders that are not happy they will have to walk further to get to where they go and then they decide to get out of the car for instance if we are not stoped to let them out but we are stopped because soemien is trying to park in a a parking spot then I stop for a few minutes to let the other vehicle manover but then my rider just decided to get out on their own even thought they had e been told no then Wes till get cited for this ?

    Boy_ross asked 5 months ago

    You can share with your riders that this program is being implemented by the City to improve safety and access on Main Street, and help alleviate congestion. We are happy to discuss the goals of the program with any riders that are unsatisfied and explain our intent. We also understand that you cannot control riders who disobey regulations, and get out in unsafe areas. We will use discretion in enforcement.

    What would happen to commercial vehicles if they are only dropping off or picking up guests at a hotel located in main street like Treasure Mountain Inn or Main & Sky? Will they be issued traffic tickets if they don't have DLS permit?

    Barley asked 5 months ago

    If ground transportation vehicles are picking up and dropping off on Main Street outside a designated DLS zone, they could receive a parking ticket for using a paid parking space without paying, or a moving violation if they double park in the street.

    I do not believe that this was the best decision to make, as a shared transport user I know that the problem of traffic is not this, but the parked cars and vehicles that stops on two lines blocking the circulation of other vehicles. I believe that the solution to this problem is to allow only shared transport vehicles to circulate at the designated time. The prohibition of this type of service will cause great dissatisfaction to the tourists users of these establishments mainly in rainy or snow days.

    Oliveira Neto asked 5 months ago

    Thanks for the feedback. The City is not prohibiting shared transportation, however, we are asking all ground transportation vehicles to utilize the drop and load zones, including those that drive for rideshare companies. The intent is to level the playing field and have all commercial users opt into the permit program. If they do not want to, we have provided free drop and load areas on Swede Alley.

    How are Parck City patrons going to be informed of this new ruling? I am repeating this issue as below as this is a huge consideration. And will have a negative impact on how guests view their time in historic main street. Careful consideration on the guest experience in navigating main street, having to walk down (or up) to Main street from Swede Alley in the snow/inclement weather and not being dropped off where they are will cause confusion. Are you providing this to all hotels and resorts to pass onto their guests/train their guests on what to expect? Will you have paid support people on the street to support guests/direct them to the pickup locations and help them find where they want to go?

    Pam asked 5 months ago

    Thank you for your question and feedback. We are working with the lodging companies to help disseminate the information to guests. We are also in the process of printing informational postcards to give to merchants to help distribute. We have had additional paid on-street support to help with the new DLS zones the past weekend.

    I need yo buy one of these passes. When and where can I do that?

    Mike asked 5 months ago

    Hello - 

    Here's information on where to purchase the permit:

    Permits can be purchased in person or via email.

    Email: Please find an electronic application form linked here and email to Parking_permits@parkcity.org(External link). Parking staff will contact you to provide payment and will mail your permit(s).

    In person: Bring a copy of your current business license to Park City Public Works (1053 Iron Horse Drive), and a copy of your insurance certificate(s) that includes vehicle VIN number(s). Pay the per vehicle fee ($200 annually). You will receive a DLS permit for your vehicle(s) to utilize the Main Street drop and load zones. 

    A For-Hire/Ground Transportation or equivalent license is required to purchase a permit. The following will suffice:

    1. Park City Municipal For-Hire Ground Transportation License

    2. A ground transportation license from another jurisdiction that has similar requirements

    3. A contract with a TNC company

    4. A hotel or similar organization with an existing business license

    There is no mention of where to purchase this permit? If parking on main Street was not allowed this would greatly solve even more of the problem you have. Also creating 2-4 streets into one way only would keep a traffic flow better in the downtown area.

    The pickup zone signage does not clearly indicate that such zones are intended pickup areas for ground transportation providers. It is concerning because many park city visitors are unfamiliar with Main Street and will not know that there are special zones for pickup. Since this will inevitably cause confusion with passengers when picking up and lead to increased wait times (increased congestion in these drop off and loading areas) have you considered methods of informing visitors where to get picked up, such as signage on Main Street directing them to these areas? I am all for solutions to prevent double parking and congestion on Main Street, but this plan appears to be poorly executed. Also why would you not incorporate the cost for the program into your sales tax rate since ground transportation is a precursor for sales tax revenue in park city?

    Jordanrich@me.com asked 5 months ago

    Thanks for your feedback and great suggestions. At this time, we have not implemented wayfinding for passengers, however, we can address that in the near future and determine what the options are. The DLS zones are in the process of being numbered, so, the ground transportation providers can tell their passengers which pick up/drop off number to wait at. Similar to how it works at the airport.

    To whom it may concern, I appreciate the concern of safety and access to main street with this new system. I could see where this looks like a good short term solution to a long term problem. Unfortunately, that is what I feel it is, a short term solution. Also, not only does it effect rideshare drivers negatively with the cost and inconvenience of it, it effects the riders experience extremely negatively as well. (And therefore their entire experience in Utah, thinking of visitors here obviously.) If you're willing to "lose money" already with this new system, then you might as well make all main street a no parking zone, or just one side of it anyway. The way this is laid out and being implemented overwhelmingly appears to benefit the city and "big transit" companies at the expense of rideshare drivers and tourists to this great state. Thank you.

    Zac asked 5 months ago

    We can't see where the rider is headed until we pick them up. So are we to decline the ride, after we drove to pick them up, if they are insisting that we drop them off on Main St? Same, if they are requesting a ride from Main St?

    oms asked 5 months ago

    There are free drop and load zones on Swede Alley (very close to Main Street) if you want to use those to drop off instead. If you use a designated drop and load zone on Main Street without a permit, you could receive a ticket.

    The ground transportation companies, hotel shuttles, resort stakeholders, and for hire taxi companies are helping to educate their passengers. We have asked the TNC companies (like Uber and Lyft) to provide the information in their apps, however they have not done so at this time. The City is also providing information online, on social media, on the radio, and in person with flyers about the drop and load program.

    As my wife and I drive TNC. We sometimes us thr same car, but do operate 2 vehicles. Do we each need to purchase a permit? Or is it 1 per vehicle?

    Driver Mark asked 5 months ago

    Each vehicle using the drop and load zones on Main Street will be required to display a DLS permit hang tag. If you don’t operate the two vehicles at the same time, you can purchase one hang tag and use it between two vehicles. But again, if you are using both vehicles at once, and one does not have a hang tag in a drop and load zone, they could get a ticket in the future. Thank you.

    I have 3-4 questions/statements so bare with me and I truly hope you answer all of them because this sounds very confusing even for riders. 1. So let's say I'm a rider/tourist walking out of one of these businesses on main and I want to order a lyft or uber between 5pm and 10pm.. Am I going to be somehow already aware that only lyft or Uber specific pass holders are going to be able to pick me up? Are you posting signs all along main in regards to this? 2. Also, how am i supposed to know as a tourist/passanger that my random picked driver has that permit? Am I going to have to keep cancelling until I find out they do? 3. Let's say I'm a rideshare driver and I pick up someone at SLC Airport and there are 4passangers w/ski gear and luggage. Lets say 2 adults and 2 children. They hop in my Truck and I start driving to their destination. We as drivers dont know where someone is going untill we pick them up. As they hop in I can see the final destination is somewhere in PC. As I get closer to my destination I realize that these people are staying somewhere on Main Street. What are we supposed to tell our passangers? Knowing I can't drop them at their destination and also knowing that there is no way that 2 adults are going to be able to haul both kids and everyone's gear up or down to the hotel. Food for thought: This sounds like a money grab that some shuttle service owner came up with and bought Park City's ear. We all know how "cheap" both Uber and Lyft are as companies and we are also aware that they don't pay for anything to help drivers cover any costs, so it's safe to assume that by doing this... you will A) Get rid of rideshare on main B) create exclusive rights back to the businesses that were there before rideshare. So if at all possible can you relay who's idea this was or provide information as to who we can contact to let them know of our disapproval. We know main street is a cluster around those hours and something needs to be done... but I'm starting to get the total amount of $200 as a money grab and also an amount that the big businesses "taxis/shuttles" are willing to pay to have exlusive rights to that area. And if covering the cost to create this VIP Service was really a concern of yours, why aren't you charging more for the pass. You should charge $500, but then that would give away who is behind this. We all have heard as rideshare drivers, a massive amount of crying and whinning from Taxi and Shuttle services because we were there taking most of their business. Instead of the city/state being happy that tourists dollars were flowing out to more locals it seems like they would be more satisfied with a few big businesses getting most of the business. We also know the shuttle services are willing to pay the $200 Because they will easily make it up with the outrageous rates they charge for their services. I feel like this is going to create mass confusion by all riders/tourists and also drivers so why not just close all traffic to main?! I mean, even looking at the map it still doesn't make sense as to why some areas are yellow on main and some aren't. Also you can clearly see that there is no way that swede is going to be able to accommodate the amount of traffic coming in and out of main, so giving zero access to everyone but public transit would ultimately be the best solution. Instead, drivers will be stuck having to foot the bill and then hope that their passangers are going to order them specificly, even though that is not possible. Closing Main to vehicles would eliminate the fear that someone walking is going to get hit and eliminate the huge cluster on main, this would be the only Safe and Intelligent decision that the city could make. The fact that riders have no ability to know whether or not their ride share will be able to pick them up gives me even more reason to think disgruntled Shuttle Service owners are behind this. I smell a lawsuit coming.

    SomeOneHatesRideShare asked 5 months ago

    Hello, thanks for the feedback and questions. The goal of this program is to help remove double parking issues/congestion on Main Street, and improve safety and access for those arriving to Old Town. We have been educating the public through social media and stakeholder groups, businesses, and with flyers on the street. The ground transportation companies are instructing their passengers as well, but we do acknowledge there is a learning curve hence the soft roll out with education rather than enforcement. We have asked TNC companies to build the drop and load zones into their app (which would essentially eliminate confusion), however, they haven’t been interested in doing that at this time. Our enforcement team (both Police Officers and Parking Enforcement) are using their discretion at this time to better educate folks on what our goals are. If you as a driver want to opt into the permit program, we are going to be more willing to work with you and help you get curbside to drop of your fare. Again, the biggest problem is double parking, so if companies help us alleviate that, we are also going to use common sense in enforcement.

  • Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    How did you arrive at a $200 fee for these permits? This seems excessive and I'm sure there are plenty of rideshare drivers who occassionally bring people to Main Street area businesses who would struggle with this fee. No fee would be preferable, but even $100 would not bite as much.

    Suzann asked 6 months ago

    Hi Suzann, the fee was determined by calculating revenue lost from removing paid parking, signs and infrastructure costs, and the additional staff needs (both in terms of Parking Enforcement and Police Officers) to make the program successful. Even by charging $200 per permit, the City will not recoup the costs to implement the program. The City is also offering free drop, load, and staging zones on Swede Alley that are free and do not require a permit to provide a free option near Main Street for those who do not want to purchase a permit, or as you mention, do not utilize Main Street often enough to justify it. Thank you.

    Are rideshare drivers allowed to pick up or drop off in other spots on main street?

    Elias asked 6 months ago

    Rideshare vehicles are asked to opt into the drop and load permit program as they are considered ground transportation vehicles offering a service in Park City. Parking tickets can be issued for dropping and loading in undesignated areas on Main Street, and moving violations can be written by Police for double parking. If you don’t want to opt into the premium drop and load permit for Main Street, there are free areas on Swede Alley that can be used instead. Thank you.

    This sentence confuses me: "Please note that a valid for hire/ground transportation business license is required to purchase a DLS Permit." I drive for UBER and Lyft. I don't have a "for hire/ground transportation business license. Does that mean I don't have to have a DLS permit?

    Gary – if you drive for a TNC company, you can show proof of a contract with them and that counts for a ground transportation business license in your case if you want to purchase a drop and load permit. Thank you.

    As ride share drivers (Uber/Lyft) some if not most of us do not have a business license. That wasn’t a requirement for the state of Utah at the time I became one. Does this mean I am forced to get a business license to get a permit from Park City just to run my Rideshare?

    Mitch asked 6 months ago

    If you are contracted with a TNC company, you can show the contract you have with them, instead of obtaining your own business license. We are accepting the state licenses that Uber/Lyft have, and we understand that you as a rideshare driver are covered under that. You will need to also show your proof of insurance though, to get a DLS permit. Thank you!

    As a driver for a local hotel, if we need to uninstall a car seat after a drop off in order to fit a new group of guests in our vehicle, can this be quickly done while parked in the new zones? Or will we have to leave, park elsewhere, remove the car seat, and come back for pickup of the new group?

    shuttledriver asked 6 months ago

    We are having the parking officers use discretion to enforce the active drop and load requirement. If there is not a huge demand for the zone (and vehicles are not waiting to pull in) we will allow you to take the time to remove a car seat. Generally, the intent is to keep vehicles from double parking, so officers may ask you to move along if that becomes an issue. Since it sounds like you are opting into the DLS permit program, we want to do the best we can to help you utilize the zones. Thanks!

    So this will force more parking onto Park Ave in the only area that does not have a residential permit system in place. Those residents already have a difficult time accessing driveways. I encourage you to drive up and down Park Ave and consider backing in or out of some of those driveways when BOTH sides of the street is lined with parked cars, pedestrians, snow banks etc.

    pcrebekka asked 6 months ago

    Rebekka, we don’t anticipate additional parking demand pushed onto Park Ave. These zones help facilitate active dropping and loading, and will circulate many more vehicles than the spaces currently do as paid parking stalls, where people often park for several hours at a time. By accommodating more vehicles on Main Street, we think it will help cut down on the parking demand and double parking problems in the area. We have also identified areas on Swede Alley where transportation vehicles can stage and wait for their fares, that is away from both Park Ave and Main Street.

    Even if your dropping off a friend you have to pay for this service? I think is crazy to pay for dropping off people.

    XY asked 6 months ago

    This permit program is intended for ground transportation vehicles and does not apply to personal vehicles. You are still free to drop of a friend on Main Street, and do not need to purchase a permit. Just make sure you pull curbside (and not in a designated drop and load zone) to drop off, as double parking in the street is still a moving violation and could result in a ticket.

    For TNC drivers we sometimes have to wait up to 5 minutes for our passenger to arrive before we are allowed to cancel. Will we be allowed to wait this long in these zones?

    Elias asked 6 months ago

    We are asking permit holders to use common courtesy with the drop and load zones. While technically they are for active drop off and pick up only, if the demand is low and others are not waiting to use the zones, Parking Enforcement will let you stay for a short period of time. Staff understand the human element is harder to control, and will exercise best judgement on a case by case basis.

    The FAQ mentions, "The permit is $200 per vehicle annually. If the program is extended beyond winter, the permit is valid and remains valid through next fall's renewal timeframe." In the event that the program is NOT extended beyond the winter, since we had to pay an ANNUAL fee, would we be given a pro-rated refund? If not, why are we paying for a 12 month permit for what is initially a 4 month pilot program.

    fsparkcity asked 6 months ago

    Thank you for your question. The permit fee ($200) has been set by the project team, with support from City Council. Refunds will not be issued for the cost of the permit. Should the program be extended following the pilot period there will be no additional permit cost to you.
