I'm going to move to Croton, but out of village. Since the waitlist is one year, I have to pay by days. So is there spots for daily parking in Croton during morning rush hour?

There are more spots than need. You will not have a problem. It is $10 per day. I take the 6:07 train most days and there are about 40 or so cars in the daily meter lot at that time. Last week I had a meeting at my kid's school and did not get to the lot until 9:45 am. There were at least 50 open spots. The earlier you get there, the closer the spot. I had to walk far at 9:45, but there were plenty of spots. There is also an overflow/longterm lot which I have never seen more than half full. Croton always has spots, any time of he day.

Another option is the cortlandt lot if you live on the north side of croton. Lots of spots available. I live in Cortlandt but orefer the train in Croton, but if you need it, it is there.

Agreed. I catch the 7:15am express train which is probably right in the middle of peak rush hour and haven't had a problem (but this is only my 2nd week commuting). There is an area for overflow daily parking as well. One tip I found out, the waitlist for a Preferred Permit is 6 months vs. 1 year for the standard permit and you can apply for both at the same time. The preferred is $450/quarter instead of $300/quarter but that $450 is still cheaper than $10/day if you commute every day. They told me to apply for both and then once I get the normal permit to just cancel the preferred permit and take the cheaper one.

Wow, I never thought to apply for both, would have saved me a few months on the list and some money. Thanks for the idea. That is good advice.

For what it's worth, I applied for both a regular and preferred mid-January. I was told today that I will be getting a preferred permit starting June 1st. Since they are only issued quarterly that wasn't a bad wait, got a permit the 2nd time one was available. I'm just glad I applied for the permit before I even bought the house because it saved a few months. No word on when the normal, lower cost permit will be available.
