News from Brigantine, NJ
Is there a discount for a 4 wheel drive gift certificate bought early as a Christmas gift?
wow. great idea. you would need to call city hall about that.
I would like to purchase a 4 wheel pass for the beach. Now that u r closed at this time can I purchase online. I’m 62 m I’m permanetly disabled . Can u please get back to me ..Thank u
At this time all the City Offices are closed but the employees should be checking their voicemail. You may get an answer by contacting 264-7350 and leaving a message. On line purchases are not available
They are open now. Disable is 85.00. Just need to bring your award letter for proof, registration and insurance with valid licsence.
yea as long as santa is in the front seat when you enter the beach…
If you are a full time resident, over 60 and were in the military I think there should be a special discount for 4×4 passes of $60.
almost positive its free to disabled vets, patrol officer lets my friend on, must have all id’s on you!!
Can you buy a daily or weekly pass
Dan, We WISH we could buy a daily or weekly pass to take our 4×4 on Brigantine Beach. We would even pay a premium for the privilege. Unfortunately, Brigantine City Council is still in the digital dark ages. They think MySpace is cool…they still use beepers, and they prefer fax machines.
Lol Thanks, that’s to bad it could be a good source of revenue that would benefit the residents, but what elected official cares about its constituents.
Or you could just buy the yearly pass that produces revenue and benefits the residents in the same way without the hassle of buying a daily pass. Or you could just park on the street and walk if you are not interested in spending the money for a yearly pass like the rest of us do. Daily passes would be a nightmare for not only the yearly pass holders but the Police department as well.
Are there discounts for disabled veterans.
Yes, Veterans must be 100% disabled, you must bring your letter of disability, showing the percentage, a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance. If you meet the above requirements, then your 4×4 beach permit is FREE.
free for disabled vets of course. and 80 or 85.00 for all other disabled persons.
Steve Thanks for the reply in reference to the No fee for a disabled vet for your Beach Permit. When I come down to your facility to register my vehicle do I have to also bring along the items required that are needed when i drive on the beach such as the safety equipment etc. or can I apply for the permit without those items. Thanks Greg Bennett
Hello, Is there anyway I can get a permit electonically, or via mail,or do I have to be there in person to purchase it?
Dan, unfortunately the city of brigantine is not a big fan of using digital tools. you have to buy in person.
no you mhave to go in person with the right documents…
no have to go in person and have the right documents…
It seems like the only permits available are for the the whole season!!! am i right or im just not looking in the right place?
city of brigantine forces you to buy a season pass for 4×4’s. this is a slap in the face to visitors and those who do not live here full time
If they sold day passes to shoobies you would all get stuck and clog up the beach.. Go to wildwood
That’s not true, Mybe I just only want to visit this beach for a day and then try a different beach
Why can’t an awd vehicle be permitted?
something to do with AWD’s getting stuck too much. pls contact city hall for more info
Because the majority of AWD vehicles are to low to the ground and they do not have locking hubs and will get stuck. Many awd Lexus and Audi’s have been swept into the beach after being stuck in hi tide.
If you buy a pass in the middle of the season is the permit prorated?
Unfortunately no. The city offers only ONE full price for the season. Even if you only visit for a day, week or month. We hope the city will one day offer a variety of different 4×4 pricing & permits.
no, they should be charging double for all permits, and there should NOT be a one-day permit cause youll get all these jokers with no respect for the island with their oil-leaking tanks on the beach hotrodding not realizing theyre an annoyance and a bane to the beach going community. beach communities are for walking and biking, not big gas-guzzling monstrosities. you want to showboat that crap go to a monster truck rally.
Another vote for weekly or monthly passes… Make it happen Mr Brig!
i swear last year i read somewhere that there were weekend 4×4 permits. I guess I was dreaming.
go pound sand notashoobie , the only thing cloggin the beach is your way of thinking.you wouldn’t know the first thing about 4 wheelin all you do is drive the beatin path, park and unfold a chair
Will you be open July 4th to buy permit?
Sad that there’s no discount for ACTIVE duty Military!
Does anybody know the rules about reserving parking spaces? Is it valid to leave chairs on the beach in the morning, go home and return two hours later when all spaces are taken and expect to keep that space?
can you use the pass for a utv? Not an atv but more like a rhino with lights and turn signals.
this is a vote for NO to day and/or weekend 4×4 permits. although i am now a homeowner and will be on the island more often than in the past, we always bought the permit and only used it a few times during the year since we live in Philly. day/weekend passes will certainly make the beach much more congested. Last thing we need is an idiot with a day pass driving recklessly on the beach.
Yeah, we don’t need them on the beach. Send them and all their millions of $ that keep our tax ratables obscenely low somewhere else!
Can anyone list any of the rules for the 4×4 beach i have a pass at island beach state park
can anyone list any if the rules for the 4×4 beach i have a pass for island beach state park and was just curious if they were any different
I’m confused!! I see on here people are saying that disabled vets can get 4×4 truck permits for the beach for free, I was just informed today by city of Brigantine that I would have to pay the senior citizens discount (which is what the Beterans discount is). So since I’m a disabled veteran, do I need to pay anything to get my 4×4 truck beach permit or not???????
Is there a discount for first responders?
When is opening day when everyone gets to drive on the beach for free and there is a parade? I went a couple years ago and it was a blast.
Are the 4×4 passes free to ALL veterans, with the proper documents, regardless of age or if disabled?
Free to all Vets. Just got mine today. ID card, License, reg. and insurance is all you need. Can’t wait to get out there with my family. Looks like a great time.
Damn people just pay the $ and enjoy the privilege..it seems like everyone forgot it’s a privilege….look at all the places we aren’t allowed to go and now everyone wants something for nothing
I quite enjoy the weekend with my kids for the past 5yrs….the price keeps out the ones that shouldn’t be there that are going to trash it up or ruin it for those of us who respect the privilege …it’s a courtesy to even let us out on their beach
I agree. Went there for the first time this weekend and will be signing up for my pass next year. Had a blast. Can’t wait to do it again. Went to wildwood and was embarrassed by all the trash people left on the beach. Keep it clean or stay home.
I herd that the state was taking control of the north end if so do you need a special pass
Quit complaining it’s for our own good
Who determines the vehicles offroad capability? I ask because technically my soccer mom style SUV is AWD, but it has an AWD lock button that when pressed tells the transfer case to keep sending power to the front and rear constantly. The owners manual says it’s for slippery road conditions and off-road only. Do not use under normal circumstances, or it could cause damage to the drivetrain. Basically the same warnings as Part-time 4WD. It actually list sand as an acceptable condition.
For the technically challenged, locking in all wheel drive IS 4 wheel drive and should not be discriminated against.
Could all info be mailed in for permits ahead of time. My arrival is on a sat and id miss out on 2 days of beach access.
how about all you 4wd or awd vehicle holders try using your all wheel drive FEET to WALK to the beach instead of zooming down the beach with your exhaust stinking up the place. god forbid you have to walk a block and cant bring your entire home with you at the water’s edge
Before I sold my house and left Brigantine, I couldn’t even drive to and park on the beach at the south end because of three-deep SUV parking. The loud *music* was also a hardship to endure. Has anyone thought of stratifying the price/availability of 4WD passes for off-island people? Aside from the discounts already in place, which I support, shouldn’t the residents who pay taxes and clean up after visitors get a break? Lower the price for residents/homeowners and/or raise the price for all others — even Atlantic County neighbors. It just makes sense.
I’m an out of stater. Keep it a yearly permit and to anyone considering beach driving, make sure you know what your doing. I’ve personally seen people who assume 4wd will get them out of anything. Wrong. Most 4wd systems are open differential meaning power only going to one wheel on each axle when engaged. Even full lockers are no guarantee to stay out of trouble. Also if our on beach practice “plus 1.” Basically pack out all your garbage PLUS 1 extra piece of refuse you find(or as much as you want). If all willingly pitch in it creates a better environment for all(and reduces chance of them banning vehicles completely)
Why isn’t there an air pump to inflate / deflate tires nearby like every other drive on beach on the east coast? 4×4 cars still get stuck and this would solve a ton.
Is the 4×4 permit only for Residents?
4×4 permits can be purchased by both residents and non-residents. All Jersey beaches are open access to all.
With a seasonal only pass it would seem you just want residents. I guess I will take my money elsewhere where I feel welcomed.
How much is the ticket for being on the jetty without a 4×4 permit? Just got one the other day trying to meet someone up there not knowing u need a permit.
