Penn Avenue past 40th street and lower (a couple blocks away, towards Downtown) is not a permit area and it is OK to park there any time.
Penn Avenue near the Children’s Hospital (a couple blocks away, towards East Liberty) is metered parking, you can pay with card or an app and add more time as needed via the app.
Mondays thru Saturdays you’re OK to park in a permit area for one hour. If it’s after 6pm or a Sunday you’re OK to park in a permit area for as long as you’re here. If it’s Monday-Saturday daytime and you want to take your chances, Pittsburgh Parking Authority rarely tickets on Penn but they do more frequently on the hill going down into Lawrenceville towards Butler Street. If you prefer, we are happy to let you move your car or move it for you every hour so you don’t get ticketed. We have one guest parking pass available and if it’s not in use you’re welcome to use it.
DO NOT PARK IN THE SUNOCO LOT ACROSS THE STREET. They are very aggressive about towing.
