Purchasing Permits Instructions

Quarterly Parking permits for Area S are $120.  Shipping is free within the United States. 

If you would like to purchase an Area S parking permit from the City of Union City, please click on “Add to Cart” button below.  You will see a drop-down menu, but right now there is only one option: Area S Permits. In the future, there may be more options as the need arises.

Once you have added a permit to your cart, you will be taken to a joint Union City/PayPal page which will allow you to adjust quantity desired.  All transactions are secured by PayPal and safe.  Simply type a number into quantity box to change. You can also remove items from your cart if necessary.  If you would like to update your zip code for shipping purposes, you can, but it is not necessary.  Shipping is again free within the United States.

Once you have adjusted your quantity desired, click on “Proceed to Checkout” and you will be taken to a page which will allow you to enter in shipping and billing information.

Once at the billing page, you will have the option to pay with either a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover only) or a valid PayPal account.  Simply login to your PayPal account where directed to use that feature.  Otherwise, select the option to pay without a PayPal account.  If you decide to not pay with a PayPal account, please make sure that whatever credit card you use is not linked to a valid PayPal account.  If it is, you cannot use that card unless you use the pay by PayPal feature.  An error message will appear if you are trying to use a credit card already linked to a PayPal account.

Please enter all billing, shipping, and contact information.  All is required and your information will not be shared.  At the end of your transaction, you can opt out of sharing your telephone number with City, but it is required that you fill out all other fields unless they are specified as optional.  Telephone number is only used to verify credit card information.  Whether you pay by credit card or pay by PayPal account, your user experience should be almost identical.

After you have entered all pertinent billing, shipping and contact information, click on “Review Order and Continue.”  You will be taken to a final review page.  If anything is wrong on that page, click on “Change” where necessary.  If you would like to cancel your transaction, click on “Cancel” at any time and you will be returned to City of Union City parking page.  If all is correct though, click on “Pay Now”.  Only click once.  If you paid by credit card, you will be shown a receipt which you can print out.  If you paid by PayPal, you will be taken back to the City’s parking page.  Transaction information will be saved in your PayPal account for future reference.  You will also receive an e-mail with all transaction information sent to the e-mail address you entered in billing.

Once processed, transactions are fulfilled as quickly as possible and you can expect to receive your permit within 1 week of purchase. Permits for a given quarter are on sale one-month prior to the start of a quarter and two months into the quarter.  Thus, please keep this in mind when purchasing a permit as you will only be sent the permit that was on sale at the time of your purchase.   Please see calendar below:
