Got to park your car in Newark? There's an app for that.

The Passport parking app is now available at the iOS and Android app stores, and can be used in conjunction with any operational digital kiosk in and around municipal lots downtown, the City of Newark announced Friday.

Residents and visitors can use the app to create a parking account including vehicle information and a prepaid parking wallet if they park in the city regularly.

App users can get a text alert reminding them when their parking time is about to expire, and are eligible for a dollar off their first parking session, provided they enter a coupon code.

You can learn more about the app by going to, calling the City of Newark's Parking Division at 302.366.7000, or by stopping by Sunday during Community Day on the Green from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
