Single Use Parking Permit 

You can still conveniently purchase a permit online at a daily rate of $5 per permit. We have transitioned to a new parking permitting system, and to obtain a single use permit, you must now visit and setup an account.

This account will allow Montclair residents or visitors to register for the purchase either a single-use daily permit or multiple single use daily permits for themselves, visitors, guests, friends, or family.

Once acquired the permit will allow you to park in any municipal surface parking lot, in a space marked "Permit Parking Only" or in front of a resident's home until 8:00 a.m. the following morning.


Please note: Daily permits NO LONGER need to be physically displayed in the vehicle, your license plate serves as your permit.

Montclair Parking Utility rates are listed below:

Permits are now monthly, with the exception of High School. All parking spaces marked with “PERMIT PARKING ONLY” are for permit only use 24hrs/7 Days a week.

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