Parking Permits

Permits for all commuter lots are wait-listed.

Permits are monthly, with the exception of High School. All parking spaces marked with “Permit Parking Only” are for a permit only use 24hrs/7 days a week.

All train station parking permits are valid 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Permit holders are allowed to park overnight in all transit lots without having to purchase an additional overnight permit.

Visitors of Montclair residents who display the single-use parking permit can park in a municipal parking lot marked ”Permit Parking Only” or in front of the resident’s home until 8AM the following morning. The permits can be purchased online and printed at home at a daily rate of $5. See here.
