The City of San Jose has developed a Clean Air Vehicle Parking Program to reduce vehicle emissions, stimulate activity in the downtown, and increase sales of clean air vehicles at San Jose auto dealerships. For eligible vehicles, the program allows free parking at participating municipal off-street parking facilities, on-street meters, and regional park and recreation parking lots. Vehicles must display the Clean Air Vehicle Parking Permit, which is available for a $30 application fee. Only eligible vehicles purchased in San Jose after January 1, 2000, can obtain a permit. Zero Emission Vehicles purchased outside San Jose are also eligible to apply as long as the vehicle is registered in San Jose.
