The parking meters, Pay Stations and the pay by cell program (ParkMobile) on city streets and in lots and garages are owned, installed and maintained by the:
Yonkers Parking Authority (YPA)
8 Buena Vista Avenue, Yonkers, NY 10701
The Parking Authority is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except holidays. On the first and last Wednesday of each month, they are open until 7:00 p.m. Please note: permit purchases must be made by 6:30 p.m. on late night Wednesdays.
If you received a parking ticket at a meter and you believe the meter was broken or fast, you MUST contact the Parking Authority immediately, but not more than 96 hours after the issue date and time. YPA will issue you a complaint number, check the meter and explain to you how to proceed.
On-street meter parking enforcement hours are from 9:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m, unless otherwise noted on posted signs.
Please remember that meters are intended for short term parking and quick turnover in business areas. If you need to park for many hours in a meter area, please use the garages or lots. Most on street meter parking in Yonkers is limited to 2 hours. Please check signs posted at meters.If you stay overlong at a meter, you will receive a parking violation for Overtime Parking.
The posted meter times, white and green signs, alert you to when and for how long you may park at a meter. If there are white and red No Parking signs with days and times posted in the area of the meters, that indicates when the street sweepers will sweep. You MAY NOT park at a meter during street sweeping days and times. Street sweeping supersedes meters.
The Parking Authority now offers a Pay by Cell phone feature from ParkMobile. Each meter will display a green sticker giving the information on how to pay by cellphone. If you opt for pay by cellphone and enter the phone number for a text message, the Company will send you a message 15 minutes prior to the expiration of the time period you paid for. You may then add more time using your cell phone. Please remember to check the time limit in the meter area. Most are for 2 hours, but time limits do vary. You may not pay for more than the time limit allowed in the same location or you may receive a violation for overtime parking at a meter.
