  2. What is the difference between reserved and non-reserved parking?

    If you have a space at a reserved lot, you must park in your assigned space. Parking at non-reserved lots is on a first-come, first served basis; you may park anywhere in your assigned lot.

  3. Why does my parking permit expire on April 30 if it has not been 12 months from the day I purchased it?

    The term for parking permits is May 1 through April 30 of the following year. All parking permits for the current term expire on April 30, regardless of when you received your permit. Please note there is no pro-ration of fees for applicants who apply and receive a permit after May 1st. NYCHA does not grant refunds of parking fees after the issuance of a Parking Permit.

  4. Who is responsible for maintenance issues at the parking facility where I park?

    The Contractor does not handle the physical aspects or maintenance of the parking facilities (i.e., lighting, striping, garbage, drainage, issues with locks, etc.). Any questions relating to the physical conditions of the lot should be directed to the site’s designated NYCHA property manager.

    Please visit the Parking Permits page for information and instructions on how to apply for a permit.

  7. I know someone who no longer uses their NYCHA parking permit. Can I use their parking permit?

    No; parking permits are registered for a single vehicle. Use of a parking permit that is not attached to the vehicle that was registered for said permit, you are in violation of the NYCHA Parking Rules.

  8. What should I do if my permit is lost, stolen, or damaged?

    You should apply for a replacement permit. Please submit an application for a replacement permit. See the Parking Permits page for more details.

  9. What do I do if someone is parked in my reserved space?

    During business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.), contact NYCHA Property Management, which is authorized to initiate the towing of unauthorized vehicles. After hours, please contact the Contractor’s Unauthorized Vehicle Line at (212) 967-4875 and provide the name of the development, lot and space number, a description of the vehicle, and license plate number.
