Truthfully, too many residents have cars and don't need them. Hoboken is a commuter friendly and pedestrian friendly town. You really don't need a car, so my advice to anyone moving here would be that if you don't need a vehicle to commute to work everyday then strongly consider not having one at all. You can travel by train, ferry, bus or foot. And if you ever do need a car, you can use a zipcar or sign up for the city's car sharing program.
I hope this is helpful! Have a great day.
In order to park on the street for long periods of time you will need a resident sticker on your car. This can be obtained through the Hoboken Parking Utility in City Hall. This sticker prevents non-residents from taking up a lot of street parking.
There are also a numher of parking garages where you can rent monthly parking. I rent garage parking for $200 a month near my condo. Here is a map of the area parking garages.
I hope this information helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I'll be happy to assist.
