Renewal Time For Red, Yellow and Green Parking Zone Permits in Bayonne

The Bayonne Parking Utility is mailing out 2018 renewal forms for current holders of annual parking permits for the Red, Yellow and Green Zones.  The Parking Utility also invites residents of new parts of the Red and Yellow Zones to apply for new 2017 permits. Due to the citywide residential permit parking system, Bayonne residents who live in the Red, Yellow, and Green Zones will receive the citywide white permit stickers and guest hangtags.  The citywide stickers will be valid for parking in all of Bayonne’s residential parking zones.  Non-residents who have business parking permits for either the Red, Yellow, or Green Zone will receive a new parking sticker that will bear the letters “NR” for non-resident.  NR permit-holders are not entitled to guest hangtags.

The Red Zone includes streets near the 34th Street Light Rail Station.

The Yellow Zone includes streets near the 45th Street Light Rail station.

The Green Zone includes streets around the last northbound commuter bus stops at the northern end of Bayonne near Jersey City.

Current permit holders are encouraged to renew them by mail by enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.  It is not necessary to apply in person. Applicants also have the option of renewing their permits in person, in Room 13, in the back corridor of City Hall, 630 Avenue C.  Applicants can avoid standing on line by renewing through the mail.

The 2017 permits for the Red, Yellow, and Green Zones expire December 31, 2017.  After a grace period, the Parking Utility will begin enforcement of the 2017 permits on Monday, February 5, 2018.

The application for all three zones will be made available through the municipal website on the Internet,  The Parking Utility will issue permits free of charge to Bayonne residents as a public service. The purpose of the permit system is to help prevent out-of-town commuters from taking parking spots away from neighborhood residents. Business permits are free of charge to Bayonne residents and to those non-resident business owners who show proof of paying Bayonne taxes and water bills.  Business permits for non-residents who do not pay Bayonne taxes and water bills cost $150 per year.

For a list of streets in the Green, Yellow, and Red Zones, please visit the City of Bayonne website,

Proof of the parking permit will be stickers that shall be displayed unobstructed on the upper left side of the rear window of the vehicle. The new stickers and related guest tags for all three zones will expire December 31, 2018.  Each household shall also receive two hang tags (visitor passes) free of charge.  Such hang tags will be given to visitors who will park in the Green, Red, or Yellow Zones in excess of three hours during the hours of enforcement.  The Parking Utility monitors their use to prevent abuse.  The visitor pass shall hang from the vehicle’s rear view mirror.  Abuse of visitor’s passes may lead to the revocation of a household’s visitor passes.  Contractors and others who provide temporary services to residents within the zone are eligible to obtain hang tags from the Parking Utility for a specified time upon presentation of proper documentation, including a contract to perform services.
