Priority Parking Rules:

WHITE and GREEN clean air decals are currently valid through January 1, 2019. White, green and ZEV decals allow you to park in any on-street, metered parking space in Santa Monica without charge for the maximum amount of time allowed by that meter.  In other words, if you’re at a 2-hour meter, you can park there free for 2 hours—but beyond that, you’re subject to ticketing for overstaying your welcome. Clean Air Vehicle decals are issued by the state.

Conventionally Fueled Vehicle Information:

Choose Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV) or Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (SULEV).
