Permit Information

PERMIT PARKING

In order to meet competing demands, our lots are allocated between “permit” and “daily” parking and subject to availability on a first-come basis to those abiding by all applicable policies, rules, regulations and procedures.

Parking permits are issued on a quarterly basis and are valid for the three month period specified for each particular lot.  Permit holders are not assigned individual parking spaces. But are assured the availability of a space within the designated permit parking area.

Our cost effective operation allows us to offer very reasonable quarterly permit rates, as compared with: $306 at Trenton and Hamilton Stations; $180 at Jersey Avenue Station; and, $210 at Metropark Station.



About the Vaughn Permit and Daily Pay Lots
Owned by WWPA and treated as one lot, these connected lots are accessible directly from either Alexander Road or Vaughn Drive.  Parking in these lots is currently shared but not divided between permit parking and daily parking.

Permits are available within a month of applying at $120 per quarter for Township residents and $195 per quarter for the general public. 

About the Wallace Permit Lot (No Daily Parking)
Owned by WWPA, this lot is reserved exclusively for permit holders, who must be West Windsor Township residents or business owners. Any Wallace permit holder who gives up Township residency will be offered a replacement permit for the Alexander permit lot at the beginning of the new quarter.  Permits are $120 per quarter, but subject to a wait list of at least 8 years. 

About the Alexander Permit Lots (No Daily Parking)
Owned by NJ TRANSIT and treated as one lot, these lots (including the gravel lot) are reserved exclusively for permit holders without regard to residency.  Permits are $195 per quarter, but subject to a wait list of at least 3 years. 

About the Importance of Correct License Plate Numbers
License Plate Recognition (“LPR”) scanners are used to identify vehicles parked without proper authorization or payment.  The LPR scanners do not leave room for error. Accordingly, permit parkers – whether assigned a “virtual” permit or a physical hang tag – must take responsibility for ensuring that the license plate numbers associated with their respective accounts are accurate and current.

About the Importance of Loaner/Renter Vehicles
Prior to parking the loaner/rental please either send an email to info@westwindsorpa.com or call the office to register this vehicle on your account – 609-799-3130.  If it is before or after hours, please leave a detailed message giving your name, permit #, make of vehicle, plate # and the length of time you will be using the loaner/rental vehicle.

About Rideshare Permits
Commuters who car pool to the Princeton Junction Train station on a regular basis may be eligible for a Rideshare permit, which requires at least 2 occupants in the vehicle every time you arrive at the lot. The wait is shorter and it does not jeopardize your position on the wait list for a permit of your own. The designated Rideshare permit parking area is located in the Wallace Road daily parking lot on the New York bound side of the tracks. Rideshare permit holders can only park in front of a Rideshare sign within the Rideshare permit parking area. The designated Rideshare spaces will be reserved for the exclusive use of Rideshare permit holders from 6:00 AM – 10:00 AM on business days. After 10:00 AM unused Rideshare spaces are open to the public for daily parking.

To apply for a Rideshare permit, you must print the form from this site, complete and send it to the West Windsor Parking Authority by mail at P.O. Box 58 Princeton Junction NJ 08550.

Permit Holders – MARK YOUR CALENDARS TO AVOID MISSING A PAYMENT!
A permit holder's failure to ensure receipt by the Authority of a permit payment by the due date will result in a late fee.  Except for accounts paid in advance, following are the annual schedules of payments. A reminder email will be sent to ALL permit holders approximately 15 days prior to the due date including those who have already paid for their permit.  If in question as to whether you have paid your permit fee, please log into your parking account and View Your Permit.  It will show the expiration date.  This indicates the paid through date.

Note:  If paying by check, please make your check payable to West Windsor Parking Authority and either:  deposit it in the drop-box inside the train station building, or; mail it to WWPA at P.O. Box 58, Princeton Junction, NJ 08550.  Please include your permit hang tag # or virtual permit # on your check to receive proper credit.  For those using personal on line banking, please ensure your bank mails the check at least 10 days in advance of the due date.

  1. It is the permit holder's responsibility to pay on-line within their account or forward full and timely payment for the coming quarter to the Authority no later than the 15th of the month prior to the new quarter.  If the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday, please ensure payment is processed on your account or received in the office prior to the 15th.

  2. Renewed Rideshare permit hang tags are forwarded to permit holders on or about the 23rd of the month ending the quarter.  “Virtual” permits for the Wallace, Alexander, and Vaughn permit lots are updated upon receipt of payment, which can be confirmed by visiting your account on-line.

  3. Patrons who have not received their parking permits must contact the Authority within two weeks after the start of the new quarter to request a replacement permit at no cost. Patrons contacting the Authority thereafter shall be charged a $30 permit replacement fee.

  4. The Authority will accept payment in advance to ensure uninterrupted permit parking privileges; however, payments can be accepted in full quarterly increments only; partial payments cannot be accepted.

  5. Late payments received after the 15th of the month ending the current quarter shall result in the following penalties:

    First Offense:  A late fee of $50 shall be required to maintain permit parking privileges. The new permit may not be issued until the late fee is received by the Authority.

    Subsequent Offense: A late fee of $100 shall be required to maintain permit parking privileges.  A “Subsequent Offense” is defined as any event of late payment occurring within three (3) years of a previous event of late payment.

    You are fully responsible for any tickets or fines received during the period your account is delinquent.

  6. Administrative fees associated with permits include $75 for a waitlist application ($10 fee plus $65 deposit) and $30 for replacement of a lost hang tag.

  7. If adding or editing a vehicle on your account you are required to email, fax, or upload a copy of the vehicle registration and insurance ID card for each vehicle.  The registration must be registered to your home address as listed on your account.  It must also be in the name of the account holder, spouse, or children residing at the same address listed on your account.

REFUND POLICY
WWPA will issue refunds of permit parking fees upon the following conditions:
Refunds of permit fees will be issued within 30 days following WWPA’s receipt of the registered permit holder’s written request, which must be accompanied by return of the physical hang tag, if applicable.

Ensuring WWPA’s receipt of a refund request is the permit holder’s responsibility.
A written request not accompanied by return of the hang tag (if applicable) is an incomplete request; WWPA will notify the permit holder of such incomplete request at its earliest convenience but assumes no responsibility for time lost by the permit holder in resubmitting the request.

Refunds will be made only in full month increments.  For example, if a refund is requested midway through a paid quarter, only the remaining full month’s fee will be refunded.  This applies to hang tags as well as to virtual permits.

In the case of a withdrawal from the parking permit waitlist, the application fee paid at the time of registration on the list will be refunded less the non-refundable administrative fee set forth by the policy in existence at the time of registration.

Refunds will be made by WWPA check payable to the registered permit holder or, in the case of a waitlist withdrawal, the person named on the waitlist. Refunds will not be made to credit or debit card accounts or third parties.
