W. Reed Gusciora: City’s Parking Meters Will Resume on June 29

Trenton, N.J. — As the city continues to reopen, Mayor W. Reed Gusciora announced today that parking enforcement from the city’s parking kiosks and parking meters would resume on Monday, June 29.

"We temporarily suspended enforcement of city parking regulations shortly after

Gov. Murphy declared a state of emergency due to COVID-19," said Mayor Gusciora. "As we restart our city’s economy, particularly outdoor restaurant dining and other commercial activities, it’s important that we begin to also enforce parking rules for our residents and visitors."

After years of careful planning, the city began modernizing its parking infrastructure in May 2019, installing 20 solar-powered kiosks. Today, the city has a total of 84 kiosks and 68 parking meters that accept major credit cards. Since then, the city has collected nearly $328,000 in revenue from 84 kiosks. City officials project revenue from its parking system to exceed $500,000 in 12 months. Also, the city treasury started collecting income from parking garage surcharges that were enacted by City Council in 2014 but never collected before.

"I am pleased that our new parking strategy is paying off," added Mayor Gusciora. "Like neighboring cities and towns, we have a parking system that is convenient for our residents and visitors, competitively priced, and easy for our parking utility personnel to maintain. This is one of several goals our administration has achieved."

The city will also resume issuing parking tickets to owners of cars who do not move their vehicles on street-sweeping routes throughout the city.

To learn more about the street-sweeping schedule for your street, please call the city’s Department of Public Works at (609) 989-3151.

The city will issue a Robocall and send text messages to residents signed up for this service to alert them about reactivating enforcement. To sign up for text messages, text Trenton411 to 99411 from your smartphone. For Robocalls, visit www.trentonnj.org/reverse911.
