Discounted Garage Parking

The City of Hoboken will continue provide reduced rate $5 per day parking in municipal Garage B (located on 2nd Street between Hudson and River Streets) and Garage D (215 Hudson Street) for residents with a valid Resident parking permit or Temporary parking permit placard through Thursday, March 22nd at 8:00am. In addition, Hoboken residents with disabilities who possess either a handicapped license plate or hang tag for their permitted vehicle may also park in the Midtown garage (371 4th Street) for the same reduced rate. Garage parking space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. When discounted parking is offered, garages frequently fill before the start of the discount period. Residents who wish to park in the garage outside of the discounted hours will be charged the regular garage fees during non-discount hours.

Street Cleaning

Street cleaning enforcement is suspended for Thursday, March 22nd and is scheduled to resume on Friday, March 23rd.

Keeping Sidewalks Clear

Property owners/occupants are reminded that they have six hours after the completion of a storm to remove snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property, along with adjoining wheelchair ramps or curb cuts. Residents are urged to assist elderly or disabled neighbors with clearing snow from their properties. It is illegal to shovel snow back onto streets or onto fire hydrants. The City is responsible for clearing sidewalks around City-owned properties.

The City performs proactive inspections and also relies on citizen complaints to help identify those property owners that are not meeting sidewalk safety requirements. The vast majority of property owners comply with these regulations, but the City will issue fines to those who do not keep sidewalks clear.

Hop Service

Hop Service has been suspended for the remainder of March 21st and will resume its regular schedule tomorrow morning, March 22nd.

City Council Meeting

Per City Council President, tonight’s meeting of the Hoboken City Council WILL GO ON AS SCHEDULED.

Reporting Problems

To report an unplowed street, unshoveled sidewalk, or other problem, residents can submit an online complaint via or via the Hoboken 311 mobile application
