Parking Permits

Middletown Township offers parking at the train station and Academy bus stops along Route 36 (this does not include the parking lot at exit 109). Parking permits are required and are issued by the Township Clerk's Office. These are annual permits and no refunds will be issued for permits once mailed.

Daily Parking

The Daily Metered Parking Lot on Church Street is located across from the Train Station. A fee of $6 per day can be paid at the convenient parking kiosk located in that lot.
