Parking hangtags serve as employee parking credentials and should be displayed in a location that is easily visible through the windshield of the vehicle – and should never be sold, transferred, borrowed or given to another employee (including Navy personnel, suppliers, contractors or a non-NNS employee).

Violators are subject to being towed at the owner’s expense, revocation of all company parking privileges and additional disciplinary measures as appropriate.

To report a lost hangtag or request a replacement, complete the Hangtag Request Form, located on the MyNNS Parking & Transportation website. Employees without computer access should ask their supervisor to complete the form on their behalf or print a copy of the form to submit – forms can be scanned and sent to or mailed through Yardmail (Parking Solutions in Bldg. 103-1). Replacement hangtags are typically obtained the same day it is reported. The employee and/or their supervisor can pick up the hangtag from Bldg. 103-1, which is located mid-yard near the gas pumps.
