Public Parking

Public Parking is available on-street as well as in surface parking lots and a parking garage. Find public parking and view parking regulations on the Public Parking Map.  The rates found on the metered parking areas on the map correspond with the rate table below.

New in 2019: The City will be transitioning to a pay-by-plate system for metered parking. Please read the Pay-by-Plate FAQ document to find out more about what this means for visitors to Asbury Park.

Pay for parking at multi-space parking pay stations or using the Asbury PARK app, powered by Passport Parking, Inc.  The app provides a very convenient way to pay for parking and extend parking sessions remotely for a per-transaction convenience fee of $0.30.  When using the pay stations, you can view, download, and print your parking receipts for easier expensing and reporting at You can even create an account and set up one or more credit cards to automatically email a receipt any time you park using the pay station. from IPS Smart Meters on Vimeo.
