MILLBURN, NJ – Millburn Township Business Administrator Alex McDonald announced that beginning Jan. 3 all Millburn municipal pay stations will convert to a new ‘pay-by-plate’ system.  There are currently pay stations located in Lots #1, 2, 4, 5 and 9. These pay stations will accommodate hourly parking ($.25 per 30 min) as well all day parking ($10) only on Chatham Road and in Lot 9.

Drivers will no longer require space numbers to pay for parking and receipts from pay stations will no longer be required to be displayed. Where parking meters still exist, coins will still be used for parking payment.

Additionally, the new ‘pay-by-plate’ parking program comes with a downloadable app (mPay2Park), available on smart phones through Apple App and Google Play stores. The mobile payment app offers quick and easy access to available parking spaces and avoids worrying about expired parking.

The new system will also allow registered drivers to phone-in parking transactions or extend parking times.  Call the number displayed on signage or the meter, respond to prompts and the transaction will appear on all enforcement devices. Text notifications will even be sent to you when time is about to expire.  At that point, drivers will have the option to extend parking times.

McDonald says the conversion to the new system will allow for easier enforcement of parking as well as to beautify the lots, as the space numbers will be removed. He reminds drivers that all time limits still apply to all parking.
