City Officials Issue Parking Enforcement Reminder for Municipal Lots, Garages and Metered Spaces
TROY, NY – City officials today issued a reminder for motorists to renew their parking permit for City-owned parking garages and surface lots. Vehicles parked in municipal parking lots and garages without a registered permit will receive a ticket. Parking permits can be renewed online at www.troyparkingpermits.rmcpay.com
Current permit holders are reminded to renew their monthly parking permit. Drivers are encouraged to use the new online parking permit registration system for spaces in municipally-operated lots and garages. The system simplifies the permit reservation and payment process and allows the City to issue and track parking permits using license plates instead of physical tags.
Failure to renew an existing parking permit will result in loss of parking permissions at the designated municipal lot or garage and release of the permit to the waiting list.
On-Street Metered Parking
Enforcement of on-street metered parking resumed January 4, 2021. Meters are active Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. On-street parking is limited to 4 hours within the Central Business District. Vehicles in violation of parking rules will be ticketed.
In January, the City launched a new pay-by-phone mobile app for metered parking in the Collar City. The app includes an alert feature to notify users when a parking session is ending. Users can also extend their parking session remotely using the app, eliminating the need to return to your vehicle.
New signage has been installed to assist drivers identify their location when parking their vehicle in metered zones. Parking kiosks will still accept cash and credit card payments.
A map of metered parking zones and instructions on using the Passport Parking app for metered parking in downtown Troy is available at www.troyny.gov/parking
