    Hybrid Parking Permits

    June 6, 2005 the City of New Haven became the fourth city in the United States, and the only in CT, to pass an ordinance allowing free metered parking for hybrid and alternative fuel vehicle cars.
    This ordinance is part of an effort in New Haven to reduce toxic emissions.  The city of New Haven has also converted the city fleet to hybrids, retrofitted school buses with diesel emissions reducing technology, and has built two hydrogen fuel cell buses.  The City of New Haven can be called “the hybrid capital of Connecticut.”
    The ordinance applies only to alternative fuel vehicles registered in New Haven.  Owners will have to come to City Hall, 165 Church Street, with proof that the vehicle is a hybrid or alternative fuel vehicle and currently registered in New Haven, to receive a decal which will be attached to the vehicle.

    Motorists will still need to obey posted time limits and must park in legal spots.
