Most spots require you to pay at the parking kiosks and accept cash or credit card. There are also coin-operated meters right at some spots. But Seaside Heights is also looking at a mobile payment app for smartphones and tablets, according to the borough tourism site.

For now, the coin slots and kiosks are what’s available. A ticket for a parking violation is $55 for Seaside Heights.

In Seaside Park, there’s still time to park for free on weekdays. But come May 16 and through September 15, parking meters will be enforced 24 hours each day.

Now through May 15, Seaside Park’s parking meters are enforced only on the weekends, specifically for the hours of 10 p.m. Thursday to 7 a.m. Monday. However, all municipal lots are closed between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. every day year round.

In Seaside Park, the paid parking areas are along the oceanfront blocks from Porter Avenue down to O Street, and the borough’s three parking lots, as well as North West Central.

Parking is $1.50 per hour in Seaside Park.
