ABOUT THE FORT LEE PARKING AUTHORITY

The Fort Lee Parking Authority is a statutory parking agency, established in 1954 by the Fort Lee Mayor and Council under N.J.S. 40:11A. The Borough then had a population of approximately 16,000, as compared to the present population estimated at 38,000. The Parking Authority started with five Commissioners.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Parking Authority of the Borough of Fort Lee is dedicated to promoting the free flow of traffic by providing, managing, and maintaining public street parking; providing the construction of off street parking lots and facilities to relieve traffic congestion that are clean, safe, and affordable. All established parking offers a variety of payment options for the convenience of the general public.

The Parking Authority is committed to providing, managing and maintaining our residents with a leading edge residential parking program; a busing service that affords seniors and other residents the opportunity to be transported to the local ferry landing; medical appointments; super market shopping and mall trips. The Parking Authority is an integral part of all Emergency Management services throughout Fort Lee.

Community Involvement

  • Provide non-emergency medical transportation

  • Develop and operate a Residential Parking Program
