219 Additional Commuter Parking Spaces Available in Manalapan

The newly available commuter parking spaces are located behind and in front of The Manalapan Shopping Center on Route 9.

If you’re on the waiting list for commuter parking, you’ll be happy to hear that the list will be getting shorter, as additional commuter parking spots have been made available within Manalapan.

The Manalapan Township Committee passed a resolution last week adding 219 more commuter parking spaces to the Township. Of the 219 spaces, 85 will be located off of Craig Road behind The Manalapan Shopping Center, which houses such stores as Bed Bath and Beyond and Babies “R” Us. These spots will exclusively be for Manalapan residents with yearly permits.

The remaining 134 spaces will be located in the front portion of The Manalapan Shopping Center, which is located at 15 Route 9 South. These spots will also be for permit holders. However, there will also be daily spots open for those who do not have permits.

“Commuter parking has long been an issue in Manalapan Township,” Committeeman Ryan Green, the Director of Transportation liaison to the Township Committee, said. “This is certainly good news for Manalapan Township commuters and those who have been waiting patiently on the waiting list.”

Additionally, the Committee is currently talking with the Freehold Township municipal government about a possible shared services agreement to add spaces to a lot off of Schibanoff Lane. These spots may an option for the residents that live in the southern portion of Manalapan.

Letters of interest have been sent out to people on the waiting list to gauge how many people might be interested in these spaces.

If you are on the waiting list for commuter parking and you have not received a letter regarding the lot on Schibanoff Lane, please contact the Manalapan Township Administration Office at 732-446-8303.

Why are there no permits for Towne Point, but there are over 100 empty spots everyday?

Be nice if they could make an arrangement for some of the spots in front of PC Richards. During the week,most of them are available

It would be nice to have a better working arrangement with Marlboro Township and the Union Hill lot as I am sure more Marlboro residents would prefer the shorter drive to Craig Road.

In this time where many telecommute at least some of the time, there should be more daily spots. Instead, people keep their permits for the 3 days (or whatever) they go in.

Maybe I'm not thinking clearly, but why would people be happy to pay for a permit to park behind Bed Bath and Beyond when they have been able to do that consistantly for the past years for free. With the benefits and money that the township gets from the residents in taxes they should be able to have an area for them to park to when they have to travel to the city for a work. It's a shame that the township is just looking for another way to get money out of it residents with no work on their part.
