Having seen Ridgewood just double its daily parking rates for rail commuters from $3 a day to 6 dollars (for 12 hours) (over $1400 a year!), I wanted to get an idea of what residents in other towns have been paying for the same thing. Would you post the rates (if any) for parking in your town at the railroad station? Please take into account parking meter rates and the cost of commuter permits. Thanks in advance.

Sadly, I would venture to say that Ridgewood is at the top of the list.

I commute occasionally to NYC and I take the train. Montvale station is in walking distance, about 1 mile from my home. When walking is not an option, as in inclement weather, I drive over and they have a free commuter parking lot. So I pay $0 for commuter parking.

Rutherford residents are offered a pass for $50/month to park on Erie Ave (parallel with train station). They also offer a lot on Kip Ave as well for the same price.

The meters are 50 cents for an hour or two hours but I believe there is a 3 hour max (also parallel to Erie Ave) so I don't believe commuters can park here...

Rutherford also offers a Jitney service that brings commuters to/from the train station (free), but of course this is a limited route not a taxi that will bring you to your door.... but a good option nonetheless...

Ok, here's what I have so far based on some research. All data pulled from town websites or phone calls to municipal offices. This takes into account the total cost of permits and/or daily fees for parking at or near each town's train station.

(yearly)
Ho-ho-kus : $175
Glen Rock : $145
Allendale : $45
Ramsey : $15
Hillsdale : $360
Montvale : $0
Park Ridge : $100
Westwood : $1
Woodcliff Lake : $5
Morristown : $900
Chatham : $350
Millburn/Short Hills : $360
Montclair : $600
Summit : $948
Madison : $400
Rutherford : $600
Ridgewood : $1400 (based on 50c hour for 12 hours, requires residential permit)

If you have info for other towns not on this list, please add it! Thanks!

More info for you:

Garfield station = no parking lot but free street parking and no parking limits (3 hours, etc. just standard street sweeping)

Plauderville station = free lot (VERY large - always a ton of spots available)

Default Lyndhurst

There is a free parking lot about a block away from the Lyndhurst station and there used to a paid lot that was right underneath but it was pretty small. They recently did some road work there and I think the eliminated the paid lot but I can't be certain.

I know you didn't ask about bus but my husband uses the North Bergen park and ride and he pays about $8 for parking plus round trip bus. Most days I just drop him off there so we usually don't even pay for the parking.
