City of Summit Parking Services Agency enforcement vehicles have been equipped with a camera and computer that reads a license plate, checks for a digital permit, and looks up the payment type.  

“Customers purchase parking time by entering the license plate number of their vehicle and the amount of time they wish to park at a pay station,” said Parking Services Manager Rita McNany. “Each machine accepts payment by coins or bills with exact change only, by credit and debit cards, and Parkmobile for smart phone payments.  Parking Services staff will be available to assist users at each location during the transition.”

For more information visit or contact the Parking Services Agency at or 908-522-5100.
