Cheltenham Township has a business-friendly parking permit program that allows employees of businesses within the Township to purchase permits to park in 12-hour parking spaces within municipal lots. The permits, which are valid from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday, eliminate the need for feeding the meters, when they are displayed in the rear window of the vehicle.
The cost of the permits are prorated throughout the year, so the cost depends upon when it's purchased. (See the Municipal Code) A permit good for an entire year would cost $200. Purchasers must present a recent pay stub to prove their employment in the township as well as a current driver's license and proof of vehicle ownership. The permits can be purchased between 8:30 a.m. and noon and 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Public Works Office in the Township Administration Building, located at 8230 Old York Road in Elkins Park.
Quantities are limited; permits will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. For more information on the parking permit program, contact the Public Works at 215-887-1000, ext. 220.
