From Friday, April 15 through Thursday, September 15, 2022, NCParking Kiosks will be in place at the Eastern and Western Ocean Regional Accesses in Emerald Isle to accept payment for parking. Signage and ambassadors will be on-site to assist as needed.
During this timeframe, parking is $2-$4 an hour, with the maximum paid per day being $16, during dates when the $4 price is enacted. Payment is accepted via debit or credit card.
Patrons may also download the Passport parking app to pay for their parking spot. The second video listed below shows how to use the phone app.
This program will run seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
If you have customer service questions regarding the payment options, please call 910-515-8825.
Emerald Isle taxpayers, business owners and select groups are eligible for 1-2 free parking passes through the Emerald Isle Police Department. You can read full details and apply for a parking pass online if you are eligible. Please note, due to the high demand, same day service is not guaranteed.
