Due to the anticipated snow storm tomorrow the Newark Parking Authority will not enforce alternate side parking on Tuesday March 14, 2017. You can find out more information on the snow storm by clicking here.
In the event of a State of Emergency the NPA offices will be closed.
If your car is normally parked in a 'snow route' the City of Newark is encouraging everyone to move their vehicles to 'off-street parking'. You can click here to see your 'off-street' parking options.
We've put together a list of places you can park while visiting the Newark Whole Foods:
The Newark Parking Authority is excited to announce that our 2nd Annual Toy Drive was a great success! NPA donated toys to the boys and girls at the local Newark charity, St. Rocco's, which is located on south 7th street.
St. Rocco's offers emergency services such as meals and shelter to women and children in need. NPA Parking Enforcement Officers and staff delivered the toys to the children who currently reside at the shelter. The toys were donated entirely by NPA board of commissioners and staff members.
St. Rocco's Director, Ms. Swaray, and their residential aide, Ms. Hill, joyfully accepted our holiday donations. The look on the children's faces was the greatest gift NPA could have received.
Our annual moratorium period will begin on the following dates listed in the below photo.
During the below dates metered parking spaces will be FREE, on the behalf of the Newark Parking Authority and there will be no enforcement from our officers.
The Newark Parking Authority is optimizing event parking in the downtown area.
We have recently installed 12 new cutting edge, solar powered, Parkeon meters surrounding the Prudential Center; with more to come near Symphony Hall and NJPAC. With the addition of these new meters we can now offer event parking rates to patrons looking for a place to park during events taking place at the Prudential Center, NJPAC or Symphony Hall.
These event parking rates will offer a great alternative to the usual parking lot and parking garage options. Customers will have the convenience of paying by credit card only.
Listed below are some of the advantages:
The streets that are currently being occupied or will be in the near future with event parking meters are listed below:
According to the ordinance 23:7-16 event parking is permitted in the listed above areas between the hours of 6:00pm-12:00am (midnight) during special events. The event days may possibly include Monday-Sunday and/or major holidays (depending on the venue's schedule of events) If there is an event occurring at the Prudential Center, NJPAC, or Symphony Hall then event parking rates will be charged in the above listed locations.
The addition of event parking will offer optimized parking options for event goers patronizing in the city of Newark. When event parking rates are being enforced there will be signs posted for the ease of drivers. These signs will inform drivers where event parking rates will be enforced. This new initiative has proven to be efficient, less expensive, and highly effective during our trial run. The Newark Parking Authority is preparing to better serve the Newark community and is beginning by offering less expensive parking rates during events.
For the past 2 weeks NPA employees has been collecting donated money from its' staff, in an effort to help the Newark Public Schools. Our staff used the money donated to purchase cases of Poland Spring bottled water. This water was donated in an effort to keep our schools safe and the kids in our community safe and free from lead contaminated water.
With the money donated we were able to purchased 34 cases of water from Shop Rite and delivered them directly to Cleveland Elementary school. There were 30 Newark Public schools reported to having lead contamination in their tap water.
Look at the photos below of the purchasing and delivery process of the water
Parking enforcement has resumed as usual. Please continue to check our websites for updates.

On Friday November 13th 2015 the Newark Parking Authority installed 10 Parkeon meters on Broadway. These 10 new meters will allow you to pay your parking meters using license plate recognition technology. You can also adjust the language to your preference ranging from spanish to portuguese to english and etc. You will be able to use these meters in just 2 short weeks, to pay for parking in that area.
