RUTHERFORD CHARGES $600 PER YEAR FOR A TRAIN PARKING PERMIT?!? HOLY CARP!

Fair Lawn charges $54 per year for residents and $188 per year for non-residents. The town doesn't limit how many permits are for sale, simply telling people that permits do not guarantee a spot and spots are available on a "first come first serve" basis.

Here's an interesting article from a couple of years ago about the parking crunch in Bergen County. The article states that Fair Lawn sold 1258 permits were sold for 325 spots. Wow.

The article also mentions a Broadway train station in Fair Lawn which apparently isn't used much (unlike the insane asylum Radburn station). For the life of me, I can't recall where this is. Anybody know?

Shortage of spots makes it tough to use mass transit

In my research I read of one town actually selling spots to another for a $1000 each and they were still going like hotcakes. Supply and demand - sucks. Thanks for your post.

Broadway station info: New Jersey Transit

Default Graph

I've created a chart which shows the cost of annual commuter parking in various towns along with no. of available spots:



forgive the formatting - all done in google spreadsheet

I swear I remember seeing a sign in Woodcliff Lake that said that those few spots were 15,000 a year with a three year minimum contract, payable at the beginning.

I am in the process of accepting a job that i have to commute to downtown manhattan from wyckoff NJ. Is there an updated chart like this? Which towns have the most spots? I have been deciding between radburn and hawthorne. Any additional info would be great.

Actually future stations will have less or no parking , most towns don't want huge parkings lots... So NJT isn't building huge lots at new stations anymore , they are building huge Highway Park & Ride stations but there finding barely anyone uses them.

The parking lots are managed by the towns in which they are located, not NJ Transit. However, I don't know who actually owns the properties, the towns or the railroad. Maybe Nexis does?

I think more important than more parking lots are better feeder buses to the train station. For example, in Midland Park, you can catch the 164 bus, which eventually goes to the city but stops at Ridgewood and Glen Rock train stations, and ride it to the train for free if you hold a NJT monthly rail pass. That sort of transportation should be made more available in other towns, if it isn't already.

I'd rather see alternatives to getting people to the trains than to see them pave over even MORE of our world.

NJ Transit cant accommodate increased ridership on their existing lines as is. You wont be seeing any lots built by them which would bring even more riders.
