People with specialty or vanity license plates issued by any state may use ParkChicago. Simply enter the full license plate number, including any stacked letters from top to bottom, then left to right, then top to bottom as applicable, as it appears on the license plate.
Make sure to correctly enter every letter or number on the license plate in order to avoid a ticket.
There are two exceptions to this general guidance:
1. Individuals with “IL B Truck” license plates that denote “B TRUCK” stacked from top to bottom on the right-hand side of the plate: ONLY NEED TO ENTER THE LETTER “B” in addition to your main license plate numbers. DO NOT enter the letters “TRUCK”.
2. Individuals with “Ham Radio” license plates that denote “HAM RADIO” stacked from top to bottom on the left-hand side of the plate: DO NOT enter any stacked letters (do not enter “HAM RADIO”); only your main license plate numbers are necessary.
If you are unsure, please pay at the pay box, or call the Customer Service hotline at 877-242-7901 and select option 2. Or text “HELPME” to 312-300-7433.
