Hoboken residents have an extra month to renew their parking permits.
To accommodate the strong demand on the city’s new online parking permit website, the deadline to renew residential parking permits has been extended from Wednesday, Feb. 15, to Thursday, March 15, according to city spokesman Juan Melli.
Earlier this month, the Hoboken Parking Utility announced the launch of its new HPU online permit sales system, which will allow residents, businesses, and visitors to conduct their parking business over the Internet.
The system is available to users 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
While the website currently only sells residential parking permits, other types of permits will be added in the next few weeks.
Existing 2011 residential permits will be valid through the end of March, according to city officials.
