Parking Passes

In addition to paid parking meters, the city manages several parking permit programs (click HERE for maps):

  • Resident Waterfront/Lighthouse Park Permit. Mukilteo residents are eligible for this annual pass that allows free parking in Lighthouse Park and on Front Street.
  • Residential Zone Permit. Residents who own homes adjacent to restricted parking zones (such as Old Town, Westridge, and Whidbey Lane) can apply for passes to exempt them and their guests from posted parking hour restrictions.
  • Employee Parking Permit. Businesses in the Downtown Business and Waterfront Mixed Use Zones are eligible for passes that allow employees to park more than 4-hours in specified locations.
  • Commuter Permit. The city rents spaces in the following lots: 609 Front Street (Diamond Knot), 89 Park Ave and 309 Lincoln Ave (Rosehill Community Center). The Commuter lot is first come first served and permit holders park in any available space.
  • Boat Launch Permit. The city has a boat launch ramp for recreational boating at the lighthouse park. Permit holders can park overnight in the vehicle/trailer parking stalls, for up to a maximum of four (4) days at any one time. The annual Permit fee for Non-Residents is $170, and for residents its $85.

How to Apply

Most passes require you to upload proof of residency (driver’s license or utility bill) and your vehicle registration. Gather your documents and apply through the Passport Portal website. All parking passes are now electronic. No physical passes will be issued.
