Buy a Parking Card

 The sale of New York City Parking cards will discontinue on December 13, 2018.

The New York City Parking Card is a pre-paid card that can be used to pay for parking at all City municipal parking fields, parking meters, and selected electronic single-space meters located in Long Island City and Manhattan. You can purchase $20, $50, and $100 cards.

To use the parking card, insert it in the meter. After you deduct the amount you need to pay, the new balance will be displayed.

Parking cards do not expire, and you can't refill them. You can use the card until the original value you purchased is spent. Discard after use. Refunds for any unused or partially used cards will not be provided.

You can combine parking cards to complete a parking session or combine with coins.  Follow the prompts on the meter for instructions.

You can purchase parking cards:

  • Online
  • By mail
  • By vending machine at the Staten Island St. George Ferry Terminal

You can pay by credit card if you buy the parking card online or by phone. You can pay by check or money order if you buy the parking card by mail. You will receive the parking cards by mail or FedEx. Your signature may be required.
