Parking is a hot-button issue in several municipalities. Many have wait lists. One village the doesn't appear to have a problem is Tarrytown. But in places in White Plains - if you need to take your car, you either have to get to the train station at the right time to secure a 12 hour meter parking or you have a walk on your hands. However, there is extensive bus service to the trains in most areas and by and large the commute to the train is not a terrible experience. In White Plains, many people share cabs going to and coming from the train to offset the expense if they are truly far from a bus route. This is temporary of course, until parking can be secured. Below is a link to Bee Line Bus timetables. Feel free to contact me if you would like further information.

In order to further clarify the parking situation in and around the Scarsdale Station (see my original answer below...), it depends on where you purchase your home. If you purchase in Scarsdale proper, you can apply for a garage permit twice a year. Once obtained, you can park in the Freightway Garage on Garth Road. Parking on Scarsdale Road is metered and has certain rules and restrictions. There aren't any private lots or garages near the station, and street parking in the area is monitored. Grayrock Road is available only to Eastchester residents who must get a parking permit, and then find a space. These are usually given to residents of the co-ops on Garth Road. All is not bleak, however. There are many local areas in Scarsdale and the Scarsdale P.O. (Eastchester and Yonkers) where one can walk to the train. Also, there are local Beeline buses throughout Scarsdale and Edgemont which bring commuters right to the train station. Your price range will have a lot to do with what your choices are. I hope that this is helpful. Frank Ledermann/Houlihan Lawrence Real Estate/Scarsdale/mobile (914) 261-8888

Just found this string... I know nothing about the Metro-North and parking situation since I am not from the area, but I was looking to the area. My question is - what do people do if they cannot get a parking permit and are not near a bus stop? Are there private lots or garages near the train station? How reliable is parking on Scarsdale Road (and can one park there all day?)? Any other alternatives? Thanks!

Parking in Scarsdale can be an adventure sometimes. If you are a NYC commuter, you would need to get a parking permit, available only to Scarsdale residents, at the Town Hall and good for 6 months at a time. Since there is new construction in the downtown, parking is limited. Eventually, there will be more parking. If you merely wish to shop, you will eventually find a space even if you have to circle the downtown a bit.

Depending on your location, there is also an express bus to Manhattan. Many living off Central Ave in Scarsdale and Hartsdale take advantage of this service.

In Scarsdale there is parking on Grayrock Road which is off Garth Road on the southbound side of the station. Also, there is street parking on Scarsdale Road. The Bee Line Bus also has service to the train station. If you need more information regarding the Scarsdale station please reference the link below.
