Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that there will be free parking for the entire month of December in all Bayonne Parking Utility lots for non-commercial vehicles. The program will be in effect through Tuesday, January 1, 2019. Parking charges in the lots will resume for non-commercial vehicles on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Mayor Davis said, â€œThe purpose of the free parking program in the lots is to encourage people to shop in Bayonne during the holiday season.â€
Mayor Davis thanked the Bayonne Parking Utility for supporting the annual free parking policy again this year. He said, â€œThe Parking Utility deserves our thanks for offering free parking to non-commercial vehicles in the lots during the 2018 holiday season.â€
The free parking program does not apply to commercial vehicles or to on-street parking meters. All commercial and non-commercial drivers must continue feeding the meters on the streets. The paid permit program for commercial vehicles that park overnight in the lots will remain in effect.
