Get A Plate. Get Free Parking.

The City of Reno is offering a new incentive for those who purchase a Reno license plate in 2016: free Friday parking. Any vehicle displaying the Reno plate will get free Friday parking in the City of Reno through December 31, 2017.

To order a plate, visit your local Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

The charitable plates contain the iconic Reno Arch and provide dedicated funding for the City’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services programs.

“There are so many reasons to believe in Reno right now,” Reno City Councilmember David Bobzien says. “By adding a Reno license plate to your car, you’re expressing that you are proud to live in The Biggest Little City.”

In addition to free Friday parking, the City of Reno is offering those who buy the license plate an annual Parks, Recreation, and Community Services pass, valued at $360.

To get your pass, bring your DMV paperwork showing you purchased the special plate to Evelyn Mount Northeast Community Center, located at 1301 Valley Road in Reno. If you bought the plate any time in 2016, you (or a family member) are eligible for the free annual pass, which grants citizens access to the Evelyn Mount Northeast Community Center and all City of Reno pools.

The money raised by the charitable plates will provide the boost in funding needed to continue to give residents access to beautiful parks, trails, playgrounds, youth and senior services, sports leagues and more.

For more information, visit Reno.Gov/Plate. Only 761 more plates need to be sold to prevent the DMV from discontinuing the plate.
