COMMUTER PARKING ALTERNATIVESTo assist commuters who park in the area, beginning April 15 the City of New Rochelle will allow permit holders for the Garden Street North and Garden Street South lots and for the Transit Center Garage to have the option to also park on the fifth level in the New Roc Garage from Monday to Friday until further notice.
Parkers must be certain to use only the fifth floor as violations will be written for those non-New Roc permit holders who park on other levels or on weekends. Permit parkers will be notified when the disruption in traffic flow from construction has subsided and regular permits will no longer be valid at the New Roc Garage.
