Hi all. I'm looking for parking options at the White Plains Metro-North train station. I'll be a non-resident, so I am assuming I'll have to go to a private lot instead of getting a town permit. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Specifically, my wife and I are moving to Rye Brook in a few months, so I am trying to decide if the White Plains station or the Port Chester station makes more sense for a commute to Manhattan. All else equal I would prefer White Plains given the sheer volume of express trains. Thoughts on this are also most welcome.

Haven't parked at the open lots near WP station for a few years. As far as I know, you don't need a permit for the open lots with meters. They take "cash key" instead of quarters.

Edit: Even the parking structure that is connected to the platiform has spots that don't require permit. I believe only the basement and roof level. Have to pay the machine. There is a private lot south of bank street apartment buildings.

Thanks! Do you know if there are monthly permit options for non-residents (for example, in a private lot)? My work hours are unpredictable so meters are not ideal.

You are welcome.

Maybe the private lot (south of bank street apartments) has non resident permits. There must be other private lots in the area.

Not sure if the lot next to Bronx river parkway is open to non residents.

You have a few options (that I know about):

1) Park in the county center lot off the bx river pkwy. Its a large lot, with a flat fee of around $7-$9 for the day. Open to anyone. If you go at "normal" commuting hours, I know it's easy to get a spot. After 8:30 or 9:00 I don't know how full it gets. You have to try it out.

2) After 10am I believe, the main indoor parking structure is open to non-permit parkers. You park and pay at a muni-meter type thing. Again, not sure what the scene is like after 10am. I have a feeling you can still get a spot but it might be a far away or high up one.

3) There are limited spots in the structure at the basement and roof that you can park before 10am without a permit but I wouldn't rely on those. They fill up very quickly.

I know theres another private lot near one of the car dealerships on the south end of the platform that people park at, but don't know the details of that. Your best bet is the county center lot.

In addtion to what hominamad said, there are also two County owned lots between Route 119 and the train station. The one closest to the County Center is the same deal as the county center lot described above, the one furthest from the County Center is permit parking and is the better deal for a full time commuter (Westchester County Center for more info). I believe that all Westchester County residents are elegible for permits in this lot. There may be a waiting list, but it shouldn't be too long.

Thank you both! I will definitely check those out. The County Center lot sounds promising.
