Hi All! I am interested in hearing from anyone who parks at the White Plains or North White Plains metro north stations to commute. My fiance and I are currently looking for our first home hopefully in lower Westchester since we both work in the city. We currently live in Eastchester walking distance from the train and love it (both being walking distance and the area) but our budget is forcing us to look a little bit further north, probably in the areas around the White Plains and North White Plains train stations. Online it says there is a waitlist for the North White Plains and White Plains parking permits and I'm not sure how full the daily lots get (i.e., will I need to be there by 7am to get a spot? If so that won't work for me as I go in later than that). Has anyone recently applied for and gotten a permit at either of these lots or have more information of the availability of daily parking at these lots (if you have to be there by a certain time? is the daily lot a far walk from the platform? etc.)? If anyone uses another way of getting to and from the train station every day (bee line bus? Uber/Lyft?) I would also be interested in hearing about other reliable methods of getting to the train. Thank you!

I have a friend that parks at the Westchester County Center lot which is on the New York side. You should have no issue finding parking there.

Thank you! I had no idea about commuters parking in the County Center lot but will look into it!

When I have business in White Plains, Courthouse and then have to go to NYC I park at the Galeria 12 hour meters and walk to the train. Pretty easy peazy.
