Pickup Truck Parking


Pickup trucks and vans are not permitted to park on City residential streets without a special pickup truck/van permit that can be obtained at your local Alderman’s Office. The permit is free and should be picked up and displayed each year before July 16. This permit must be displayed in addition to a valid Chicago City Vehicle Sticker.

The 19th Ward does not require truck permits.
