City of Pittsburgh Council District 6
On Wednesday, May 1st, the City Council had passed Councilman Lavelle’s ordinance regulating valet parking in Pittsburgh. The ordinance will shift management responsibilities of the City’s licensing program for valet parking from the Police Department to the Department of Public Works, institute penalties for violations, and will require operators to display proper signage for valet drop-off and pick-up points.
Among the provisions in the ordinance, the new valet parking regulations include:
  • Requirement that every valet parking service obtain a license from the Department of Public Works.
  • Requirement that valet operators display City approved and issued “No Parking” signs at the parking space or spaces utilized for drop-off and pick-up of valet parking.
  • Requirement that the valet operator provides legal off street parking spaces of at least 15% of the occupancy of the business they work for.
  • Implementation of penalties for violations that are the responsibility of the valet operator.
The ordinance also includes two amendments from Council:
  • A copy of the driver’s license of each valet parking operator or attendant that is parking the vehicles.
  • A clear path of travel of 3 feet must be maintained at all times if the valet service is located in the public right of way.
