Resident Permit Parking

Depending on the zone and off-street parking options for each dwelling units, residents may be permitted to buy up to two permits. Permits are $90 for the first permit, and $120 for the second permits. In applicable zones (1, 2, and 3), and if extenuating circumstances exist, a third and fourth permit can be issued at a cost of $150 and $180 respectively.

To get a residential permit, bring a driver's license and registration, and a current deed, lease, and utility bill as proof of residence.

Employee Permit Parking

Employee Permit parking cards are available for 5-Day users and 7-Day users. The 5-Day pass allows employees to park in designated areas from Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5:30 pm. The 7-Day pass allows for parking from Monday through Friday, weekends, and holidays from 9 am to 12 am.

5-Day Permits are $120 for a year, and $10 for a month. 7-Day Permits are $180 for a year, and $15 for a month. To get a permit, business owners should bring with them their driver's license and registration, and an Asbury Park Mercantile License or State or Federal tax forms filed under their Asbury Park business address. Employees must bring a driver's license and registration, and current pay stub or notarized statement from their employer.

The card can be used like a credit card at meters within the designated areas. Employees will enter the number of hours they'll be using the spot, and then swipe their card. If they have to take their car and leave that spot before their time is up, another car taking the spot or paying for one hour of parking (maximum cost, $2) will cancel their original swipe, and they can use their permit in another spot.

If an employee no longer works at the business connected to their permit card, they can return their card to City Hall. Their employer can call the parking office, to make sure the card has been returned.
