Public Parking Permits

Surf City Residents & Visitors are now able to register for seasonal parking permits through Pivot Parking!

What do the seasonal parking permits include?

  • No-cost parking at any of the designated town-owned parking lots
  • Season passes valid April 1st – October 15th from 9am – 5pm, daily

In addition to the parking permits, island homeowners are also encouraged to register online for a Hurricane Re-Entry Decal that will replace the current Key Card system. Decals will be placed on your car windshield to assist in a more efficient island re-entry process.
