Jersey City Parking Zone Map

Parking in Jersey City is increasingly in short supply. Monday through Friday, to thwart out of city commuters from using Jersey City streets as a park and ride, most streets fall under resident permit zones. Resident permits are available from the Jersey City Parking Authority to residents with proper identification.

Most of the zones limit vehicles without permits to 2 hours, after which vehicles without resident permits, or the wrong permit for the particular street are subject to tickets, towing and the dreaded boot. Parking permits have nothing to do with street cleaning or emergency snow routes and vehicles with permits may still be ticketed or towed for these offenses. Read all signs carefully.

Disclaimer: This map is intended as an informal guide, not an absolute street index. Drivers should read all signs before parking. We are not responsible for any parking ticket you receive. Streets without a zone label on this map generally prohibit parking. There maybe a few "sweet spots" around the city that have neither zone requirements nor parking restrictions. But if we knew about them, we certainly wouldn't tell you.

thanks for the map. I have a question. If I have a residential permit, I can park as long as I want in the right zone even it has the sign of 2-hour parking. right? of course we assume there is no street clean and other situation.

The 2 hour restriction does not apply to cars with residential stickers. The alternate side parking in effect for street cleaning however, still applies to residential permit holders and cars with resident permit stickers should be moved.

Thanks Ian. After reading all your post, I have a general understanding about Parking in Jersey City. I have another question, my zone is zone 1 close to Grove PATH station. I'm going to try to find a parking spot in zone 1. I'm wondering if there is any safety concern for cars in zone 1. for example, which streets should I try to avoid to park because of the multiple car breaking incidents?

Is there a map showing what days and times are applicable for alternate side, or is there a way to add that information on this map?

For instance, on Erie Steet (near 8th Street), one cannot park on the East side on Mondays and Thursdays or the West side on Tuesdays and Fridays between the hours of 10am and 12pm.
