                                                          Parking on NSAB


Parking on Naval Support Activity Bethesda is limited.

With nearly 12,000 personnel working on the installation, it is a challenge to provide adequate parking for staff members. Additionally, NSAB is directed by the National Capital Planning Commission to keep parking as close to a 1 to 3 ratio as possible. The requirement is part of managing traffic in the region, and encourages commuters to use alternative means of transportation, including carpools and public transit options.

Every two years, the NSAB transportation officer reviews parking pass distribution. The transportation officer is tasked with determining whether each mission partner has their fair share of parking to accommodate their personnel and mission. The number of parking spaces allotted to each mission partner is based on their size in relation to other organizations on the base.

An additional 10% is allotted in overall parking to accommodate for people on leave, TDY orders, night shift workers, and other exceptional circumstances.
