In an effort to promote local dining and shopping, the City of Hoboken will offer free parking for up to four hours in municipal Garage B (28 Second Street), Garage D (215 Hudson Street), and the Midtown Garage (371 Fourth Street). In order to redeem the free parking, drivers will need to show the garage attendant a receipt showing purchase of at least $20 at Hoboken shopping or dining establishments. The discount will be offered on weekends beginning Saturday, November 26 and will last through January 2, 2023.
The City will also offer discounted metered on-street parking through December 31. Drivers can use promo code “PARKHOB” in the ParkMobile app to receive 50%-off parking sessions through the end of the year. The 50%-off parking sessions will be valid in select zones, primarily in business districts, and can be viewed by clicking here.
“Hoboken stands ready to support our business community by making it easier to shop this holiday season,” said Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “We are pleased to once again offer free and discounted parking to customers who patronize our small businesses, as they run errands, meet friends for dinner or find that perfect gift. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this service and shop locally!”
“Small Business Saturday is such an important day for our local businesses kicking off the holiday shopping season,” said Roxanne Earley, Executive Director of the Hoboken Business Alliance. “This year, the Hoboken Business Alliance is excited to launch our first ever Hoboken Holiday Passport to encourage residents and visitors to choose local businesses over e-commerce. We are thrilled that the City is offering free parking for shoppers and discounted street parking in our business districts. Making it fun and easy for customers to get to Hoboken stores to complete their holiday shopping is another great example of the strong partnership between the Hoboken Business Alliance and government.”
