BELMAR, NJ — Beginning the Fourth of July holiday weekend, ride-share passengers will be able to be dropped off or picked up at four designated areas in Belmar.

These ride-share zones, which will be marked with signage, will be in place at the following locations.

  • Ocean Avenue, near D’Jais at 18th Avenue.
  • Belmar Marina, near the Marina Grille.
  • Eighth Avenue between Main Street and Belmar Plaza, near Anchor Tavern, BeachHaus Brewery and 10th Ave. Burrito Company.
  • Main Street between 15th and 16th Avenues, near the Boathouse Bar & Grill.

“Our goal is to make it safer for residents in Belmar and visitors who use ride-sharing services, like Uber and Lyft,” Belmar Mayor Matthew Doherty said. “Hopefully, it will also reduce the number of summonses these drivers are getting for improperly picking up and dropping off passengers in the streets."

The new ride-share areas will not affect the taxi stands, which have long been established at various locations on Ocean Avenue and Main Street in the same areas as the new ride-sharing zones.
