IMPORTANT: City of Gloucester Introduces New Online Reservation System for Beach Parking for Non- Residents

Introduction of digital pass platform will modernize an outdated system for non-resident beachgoers.

Today, Mayor Greg Verga announced the launch of a new online reservation and payment system for non-resident beach parking for the 2022 beach season. The City of Gloucester will utilize Yodel, a parking management platform, to allow non-resident beachgoers to reserve and pay for their parking space at City beaches up to ten days in advance. 

This innovative technology will streamline the parking procedure for all visitors to Gloucester’s beaches. Modernizing our systems and creating new efficiencies will address several of the concerns of our residents and improve everyone’s beach-going experience.

“This is a major step towards modernizing and advancing an outdated and inefficient system for both resident and non-resident beachgoers,” said Mayor Greg Verga.

Yodel will serve as a digital pass platform and bring a modern solution to the beach parking management system. Non-resident beach visitors will be able to reserve parking in advance to guarantee a space while reducing traffic and improving service. 

This is an improvement from the traditional first-come-first-serve, on-site cash payment that has been the norm for decades at City beaches. Non-resident beach stickers will no longer be available, and reservations are nonrefundable.

 “This will improve access for non-residents visitors and ease the delays and traffic that our residents typically face,” said Verga.

There will be no significant changes to the resident beach sticker process, and no reservations will be required for residents. 

Residents can learn more about purchasing a beach sticker and the new online application option at the City’s website: https://www.gloucester-ma.gov/654/Beach-Sticker-Application.
