NEWBURGH, NY – The City of Newburgh is excited to announce the upgrade and expansion of municipal parking meters and the launch of its first mobile payment option for parking powered by Passport, a leading transportation software and payments company. The go-live date is scheduled for Monday, August 8, 2022.

The City of Newburgh has removed 718 outdated parking meters, installed approximately 75 new cashless parking meters and expanded the on-street meter program to include the Waterfront area and commercial areas adjacent to Broadway. The upgrade and expansion of the parking meter program was done based on the results of a comprehensive Parking Meter Enhancement Study and Downtown and Riverfront Parking Meter Expansion Feasibility Study conducted in 2020.

All impacted areas will have signage and set parking costs. The existing parking meters on Broadway have been replaced and paid parking will now include Front Street, Liberty Street, Prospect Street and Grand Street with enforcement Monday through Saturday (free parking on Sunday). The hours of parking enforcement are from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. in the waterfront area and from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for all other areas. 

Through Passport’s mobile parking application, motorists will have the ability to pay for and manage parking sessions from their smartphones, as an alternative to using quarters. With a mobile pay option now available, the City of Newburgh can support its merchants and drivers through a seamless and digital parking experience. Business can purchase time for their customers through the merchant validation program via the Passport app.

The mobile app is convenient, simple and secure. To begin a parking session, users create an account, enter the zone number marked on nearby signage, their license plate number and the desired length of stay. Users can extend sessions remotely and review parking history and receipts with just a few taps.

In addition to launching Passport’s platform to offer mobile payments for parking, the City of Newburgh also powers its enforcement operations through Passport, allowing the City to utilize an end-to-end parking and enforcement solution with one digital platform. Passport is trusted by more than 800 cities, universities and agencies including the nearby City of Rye, the Village of Larchmont and the Village of Pelham.

The mobile application is free to download on Android (https://bit.ly/3tE2Xeb) and iPhone (https://apple.co/3QrflrG). Users can also manage their parking online at: https://www.passportparking.com/.
