Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the Bayonne Parking Utility’s parking sticker permits will be replaced with “virtual” permits registered to license plates for the Blue and White Zones. The transition to enforcement by license plate is gradual. The transition began earlier this year with the downtown Orange and Purple Zones. Enforcement by license plate will spread to the rest of Bayonne as parking zones come up for renewal.
The old permits for the Blue and White Zones will expire on June 30, 2019. There will be a five-week grace period that will end on Friday, August 2, 2019. Enforcement of the new permits will begin on Monday, August 5, 2019.
The Blue Zone was created to protect on-street residential parking for the streets around the 22nd Street Light Rail Station. The Blue Zone includes the side streets from 16th Street through 26th Street.
The White Zone was created to protect on-street residential parking for the streets around Bayonne Medical Center. The White Zone includes the side streets from 27th Street through 30th Street.
For a detailed street listing for each zone, please visit the City website, www.bayonnenj.org.
The new parking enforcement gives residents the convenient option of dealing with the Parking Utility on the Internet. For anyone who is uncomfortable with the Internet, or who has no Internet access, permit holders will still have the option to renew by mail or in person, in Room 13 in the back corridor of City Hall, 630 Avenue C.
Doing parking permit renewals electronically will have certain advantages. People can request permits and manage their vehicles on the Internet, all without having to come in person and wait in line. Electronic methods can also be used more for permit parking enforcement. During 2019 and 2020, parking enforcement officers will replace reading permit stickers with license plate-based enforcement.
