City of Hoboken Offers Denizens "Vacation Parking"

Below is another innovative plan from Parking and Transportation guru Ian Sacs. Keep in mind not everyone one of his initiatives needs to be successful for him to to be successful a  Director on the whole. At least we have someone in office willing to move our City forward with new ideas in parking and transportation....


The City of Hoboken is offering residents who are planning time away from Hoboken the option to park their cars in a municipal garage at a discounted rate.

“We created this option for residents who usually park on-street so that when they go on vacation, they can avoid the street cleaning tickets or the hassle of asking friends or family members to move their cars,” said Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs. “It’s a convenient amenity for residents which also makes more efficient use of excess capacity in our garages.”

The vacation parking option allows residents to keep their car in the City’s Garage B on Hudson Street (6th Floor) up to 14 days per year. The discounted fee is $5/day, with a maximum of 14 days per calendar year. Interested residents should go to the Hoboken Parking Utility office and provide the same documentation as required for a Resident parking permit. Residents will receive a “Visitor parking permit” that indicates validity in “Garage B, 6th Floor” only and the dates the permit is valid. When departing the garage, residents should show this permit to the attendant to be charged the discounted rate.
