What is the cost for and is it worth it to try & park in any of the following commuter lots? From what I read all the regular spaces are assigned, and ir looks like it is a dog-eat-dog world to get a spot. I'll be commuting to Newark, and wonder if it is just better to drive in. Which then leads me to my next post, parking in Newark!

Middletown
Hazlet
Aberdeen/Matawan


Thanks!

All have Parking , all have waiting lists. NJT is not building anymore lots , but they encourage you to walk or bike to the station like i do. IF you live within a half mile of the station theres nothing stopping you form doing that. Alot people in my town do that. Between tolls , Gas and Parking in Newark , you better off using the Train or bus.

All of the parking lots, their cost and who to call for information is on the NJ Transit website.

But, since I moved down that way just this past year (not any of the towns you listed but I looked in them) I can give you a little info. Middletown has a waiting list for resident parking at their main lot. However, they have an overflow lot that probably has spots available--I believe it's by a Sears on Route 35. There's a bus or shuttle that takes you from there to the train station.

Hazlet has a waiting list for resident parking, and they have some limited spots for Daily Parking, too. If you leave early enough you would have a shot at one of the daily spots.

Aberdeen/Matawan from what I understand has the longest waiting list of all, like years.

When I moved to Monmouth County a year ago, I lived in Long Branch, which has daily parking only but always has spots. It's $3 a day. Now I am in Eatontown and park at Little Silver, which does have non-resident permits available.

Your best bet is to call each town and find out what the situation is. That's what I did last year when I was looking for a place to live. My info may be outdated by now. Good luck!

Oh, and there are a couple of lots in the vicinity of Newark Penn Station that have $8 per day parking if you get there before a certain time. I have never used them--just saw the signs when I was there a few times.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I'm not within a walking distance, so I'd have to park. Thanks
