The Bayonne Parking Utility reminded residents that enforcement of the new annual parking permits for the Blue and White Zones will begin on Monday, August 1. Enforcement will also begin that day for the new portions of the two zones. The old permits for the Blue and White Zones expired June 30, 2016. The one-month grace period that began on June 30 is coming to an end. The Blue Zone was created to protect on-street parking for residents in the streets around the 22nd Street Light Rail Station. The White Zone was created to protect on-street parking for residents in the streets around Bayonne Medical Center (formerly Bayonne Hospital). Previously, the western border of the two zones was the west side of Avenue C. Effective Monday, August 1, the new western border of the Blue and White Zones will be the west side of Avenue A. Enforcement will begin in the new parts of those zones between Avenue C and Avenue A on August 1.
The Blue Zone includes the side streets from 16th Street through 26th Street.
The White Zone includes the side streets from 27th Street through 30th Street.
Due to the citywide residential permit parking system, Bayonne residents who live in the Blue and White Zones have been receiving citywide permit stickers and guest hangtags. The citywide stickers are valid for parking in all of Bayonne’s residential parking zones. Non-residents who have business parking permits for either the Blue or the White Zone have been receiving parking stickers that will bear the letters “NR” for non-resident. NR permit-holders are not entitled to guest hangtags.
Current permit holders are encouraged to renew them by mail by enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. It is not necessary to renew in person. Permit holders also have the option of renewing their permits in person, in Room 14, in the back corridor of City Hall, 630 Avenue C. Applicants can avoid standing on line by renewing through the mail. New permit stickers or hangtags must be placed in vehicles by Monday, August 1, to avoid parking tickets.
