More rental cars coming to Hoboken

Avis car rental opens in Hoboken, NJ

Avis is scheduled to open this week at the ProPark parking garage at 1450 Bloomfield Street.

53 spaces on two floors – which doesn’t take street parking away from residents the way the Hertz On Demand program works (and it gets people free exercise to walk to the garage!)

Avis Budget Car Rental wants 53 parking spaces in uptown Hoboken


Received this letter from the Hoboken Planning Board the other day – indicating that Avis Budget Car Rental wants to move 53 cars into the ProPark Parking Garage on 15th Street.

Normally not a big deal since it’s not taking away on-street parking – but apparently some kind of “rental booth” (Fotomat – remember those?) will need to be constructed, thus the planning board requirement.

Swing by City Hall on March 20th if you have a sick aversion to cars, or are completely bored that day…

The traffic there is so light that I highly doubt pollution issues would be a problem. Their meager wages and corporate polo shirts are higher on the list.

It’s great to have more rental options in town but hopefully Avis will provide their workers with some Vitamin D pills and an air filter for that little office in the garage.

I’m kidding! It looks great! I bet they’re going use that location for all of their advertisements!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
