Tips if you have a limited budget

If you have a limited budget, here are some tricks and tips.

Use parking only when you need it

  • If you need parking for work, you can find spots to rent during working hours for a reduced price.
  • Similarly, you can buy a monthly spot for overnight and weekends only if you need a monthly spot when you come back home.
  • If you rent a parking spot for part of the time, you will need to play the NYC street parking game and we are here to help -> Check this NYC parking map to see free parking options around you

Take advantage of the Park + Ride at transit stations
