Two Hours of Free Meter Parking Available in SIDs from Dec. 1 to Jan. 2

The Jersey City Parking Authority has a gift for locals that everyone will love, two hours of free meter parking in municipal lots.

From Saturday, Dec. 1 through Jan. 2, drivers can park free for two hours in the city’s five Special Improvement Districts, an initiative meant to encourage local shopping.

The free parking will be available in the Historic Downtown, Central Avenue, McGinley Square, Journal Square and Jackson Hill Main Street SIDs.

Also, street sweeping will be suspended from Dec. 24 to Jan. 2.
