ATTENTION NYCHA PARKING PERMIT HOLDERS:

Effective June 1st, 2018 we will be accepting new applications for parking within a NYCHA development. If the development is on a waitlist, we will be working on offering available spaces to the individuals on that waitlist, and if you're a new applicant, we will place you in line on that list and reach out when a space becomes available for purchase.

 

Please be advised that effective June 1, 2017, there was a change to our yearly parking permit rates, impacting non-resident parkers only. NYCHA residents were not impacted.

  13. My vehicle was erroneously booted, how do I file a complaint?

    All vehicles are checked thoroughly both visually and through the parking permit software prior to a boot getting placed, but if you believe an error was made please send you concern and backup to PO Box 2690 | New York, NY 10108, and we will investigate and respond in writing.

  14. How do I know if booting is enforced at the lot?

    Currently, booting is enforced in all Bronx borough NYCHA Development parking facilities, in addition to towing. We will likely expand to other boroughs in the future.

 

 

“Beginning June 2018, the New York City Housing Authority will introduce a new enforcement service for parking lots at Bronx developments called “Self-Release Booting.” Although cars may still be towed, this new approach will help NYCHA residents with parking permits by reducing the number of vehicles parked illegally.”
