Maplewood Station is a New Jersey Transit station in Maplewood, New Jersey along the Morris and Essex (formerly Erie Lackawanna) rail line. It is the sole railroad station in Maplewood and is located at the heart of its shopping and business district.

Parking[edit]

Parking is available in a small lot just to the east of the station on the eastbound side (Lot 1) and a lot one block west of the station on the westbound side (Lot 4). There are also several signed areas along nearby streets, referred to as Lots 2 and 3. A motorist using Lot 4 must make one street crossing, walk under the metal trestles carrying the tracks over the street, and then walk fifty to a hundred yards to either the center or southside platform.

Between 6 and 9 AM on weekdays, Maplewood residents with permits may park in any of the 4 lots free of charge (excluding the yearly cost of the permit). Non-residents (or residents without permits) may park all day in Lots 1 or 4 for a daily fee of $3.00. The lots have neither a gate, gatehouse, nor attendant; instead, a motorist places his fee into a numbered slot in a box near the lot entrance.

After 9 AM on weekdays, and all day on the weekends and holidays, any motorist may use any lot free-of-charge, as signed.

There is no overnight parking as no parking is allowed in any lot between 2 AM and 6 AM.

Bicycle lockers are also provided.
