Parking and Drop-Off Information for Tour Bus Operators

To bring people to the beach, please contact the police department at least 24 hours in advance at 207-646-9362. Pay a "beach impact fee" of $100 for the bus or $50 for a van to the Ogunquit Police Department before dropping off. (Ogunquit Municipal Code Title 5, Chapter 12 Appendix) https://www.ecode360.com/documents/OG3870/OG3870-005.pdf

However, due to congestion at the beach, buses cannot drop off there. Instead, you would drop off and pick up at the parking lot at Cottage Street (across the street from the police station). From there, you would need to walk to the beach (about 1/4 mile). Vans can go to the beach, but traffic congestion being what it is in-season, the Cottage Street location may be more convenient if you are coming then.

A bus does not need to pay to park/drop off in Perkins Cove, because they are prohibited in Perkins Cove in July and August, due to the congestion and difficulties in maneuvering there. Consider contacting the Perkins Parking Lot outside of Perkins Cove about parking and dropping off there.

Ogunquit Municipal Code: Title 5, Section 906: Seasonal Size Limitations on Perkins Cove Road. Buses, campers, trailers, recreational vehicles, motor homes, and all vehicles in excess of forty (40) feet shall be prohibited from traveling on Perkins Cove Road beginning July 1 through Labor Day, except service delivery trucks may load and unload in Perkins Cove during the hours of 7am-12noon.

According to the police, after drop-off, they suggest that that bus driver park in the Hannaford parking lot in Wells, since buses are not permitted in Ogunquit public lots. Tour Operators may also contact the Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce at 207-646-1279. Up to one bus at a time can be parked at the Ogunquit Welcome Center if we know about it in advance.

Ogunquit Municipal Code: Title 5, Section 1102: Trailers, Campers and Busses. Parking of trailers, campers, and busses is prohibited at the following locations from May 15 to September 15: 1102.1 Main Beach Parking Lot; 1102.2 Footbridge Parking Lot; 1102.3 North Beach Parking Lot; 1102.4 Stearns Road Parking Area; 1102.5 Upper Lot; 1102.6 Lower Lot; 1102.7 Perkins Cove and Perkins Cove Road.
