Electric Vehicle Charging in Hoboken

In April 2019, the City of Hoboken adopted a Climate Action Plan to achieve greenhouse gas reductions in ways that improve quality of life, environmental and public health, and resilience for present and future generations of Hoboken residents.

In 2021, to help support the City of Hoboken’s ambitious Climate Action Plan goal of being carbon neutral by 2030, the City of Hoboken unveiled its first phase of City-owned, publicly accessible level 2 electric vehicle charging stations at Garage B, Garage D, and on First Street between Washington Street and Court Street.

In July 2022, the City expanded the number of level 2 electric vehicle charging stations at Garages B and D and added electric vehicle charging stations to the Midtown Garage and the municipal parking lot at 1301 Jefferson Street.

Through these two phases, the City installed 22 level 2 charging ports at the following locations.

Green Pass Program

Acknowledging the reality that most Hoboken residents lack access to charging facilities at their place of residence, the City of Hoboken launched a six-month pilot Green Pass program to provide discount garage parking for Resident On-Street Parking Permit holders while they are charging their electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle in Garage B, Garage D, and Midtown Garage. Members of the Green Pass program will be eligible for a discounted parking rate of $6 for up to eight hours while charging at Garage B, Garage D, and Midtown Garage.

The City will use data from the six-month pilot program to develop a database of electric vehicle ownership across the city to help understand constraints and opportunities for expanding access to electric vehicle charging in Hoboken.

Green Pass Program Requirements

To enroll in the Green Pass program, your vehicle must:

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How much does a Green Pass cost? The Green Pass is free. You must, however, have a valid Hoboken Resident On-Street Parking Permit.

2. How do I enroll in the Green Pass program? Use this link to access the online application form.

3. What do I do once I’m approved? Once your vehicle is approved, you will be eligible to pay the discounted parking rate of $6 for up to eight hours while charging at participating municipal parking garages. Your vehicle details will be uploaded into the City’s parking access control systems, so you’ll automatically receive the discount rate upon leaving the garage.

4. Which parking garages are participating in the Green Pass program? Garage B (28 Second Street), Garage D (215 Hudson Street), and Midtown Garage (371 Fourth Street).

5. Why are you offering parking discounts to EV / PHEV drivers? Unlike in suburban areas where most people charge their electric vehicles in their driveways or private garages, most residents of Hoboken do not have access to off-street EV charging stations at their place of residence. The Green Pass pilot program will help reduce the costs of charging an electric vehicle and make electric vehicle adoption in Hoboken more appealing.

6. How much will I pay if I park for more than 8 hours in the participating garage? After eight hours, you will pay the prevailing hourly garage rate for the remaining time your vehicle is parked in the garage.

7. Will my vehicle be compatible with the EV charging stations in Garage B, Garage D, and Midtown Garage? The charging stations installed in Garage B, Garage D, and Midtown Garage are Charge point level 2stations. These charging stations use standardized J-1772 ports that are compatible with most electric vehicles in North America.
