You will be able to make address changes, add or delete vehicles, and add or change credit card information. In addition, invoices will be automatically generated and emailed to you. Credit card payments will be processed automatically through the portal as well.

In the coming days, be on the lookout for an introductory email from explaining the process to access your account online. Please add this address to your Safe Sender list.

Public Service Announcements - Saving Parking Spots

A Friendly Reminder…

While we understand everyone would like to park in front of their residence, saving unoccupied parking spots is not allowed and illegal. The City of New Brunswick wants to remind residents to be good neighbors and respect the parking rules and regulations.

The use of cones or other objects to save a parking space along a residential street is prohibited. If this practice is observed by officers of the New Brunswick Police Department or the New Brunswick Parking Authority, the cones will be removed, and a summons will be issued when applicable. Please be courteous to your neighbors and obey the rules.

Alternate Side Parking starts Monday April 1st, 2024

Effective April 1st through October 31st, 2024 street sweeping occurs throughout the city. Signs are posted on each street advising when street sweeping will take place and when alternate side of the street is required so that the street sweeping crews can clear the streets of debris. 

In order to do their job properly, street sweepers need curbs to be clear of vehicles. This service is paid for by the city's taxpayers, and taxpayers expect the service to be performed. By leaving your vehicle on the street when sweeper arrives, you are preventing the curb line in that area from being cleaned, as well as the areas before and after your vehicle, as the sweeper needs to maneuver past the parked vehicle. 

Be a good neighbor, obey the alternate side parking rules and kindly move your vehicle.   

For daily Alternate Side Parking Information call the toll free hotline: (877) 462-7669

Alternate Side Parking will be strictly enforced.
