Announced 2/21/13: New Commuter Lot Parking Paystations to be Installed

The new machines will charge a rate of $6 per calendar day and exact payment will be required.  The new machines will not issue change but will accept payment via credit and debit cards.  See attached for further information.

Residents are guaranteed parking permits, however, all new applicants will start out in Lot 3 in Katonah. A resident wait list is maintained for lots closer to the Katonah train station and all Bedford Hills lots. A limited number of permits are sold to businesses that operate in the hamlet business districts and nonresidents. All business permits are offered on a first come, first served basis until sold out. Nonresident permits are offered via lottery and then first come, first served until sold out. A wait list is not maintained for nonresidents. Please call the Parking Permit sales desk for information on availability and application information for all parking permits.

Multi-Space Parking Meters
The Town of Bedford utilizes multi-space parking meters for metered parking in select parking lots. These meters allow customers to park in a numbered space (remember the space number) proceed to the parking pay station, pay the parking fee and without returning to their vehicle proceed to their destination. Length of stay depends upon the location of the parking lot. The lots are not staffed with an attendant. Further information can be obtained by calling Parking at 666-8097.

Daily Parking Permits
Due to the increased use of the metered spaces by residents of surrounding communities, daily parking permits are available to Town of Bedford residents. Many residents feel that the ability to acquire a daily permit ahead of time for the date of their activity or appointment is an important quality of life issue as a Town of Bedford resident. The Parking desk currently sells daily permits to residents and nonresidents for medical appointments and jury duty.

The following rules and restrictions will be implemented:

1) Daily permit sales without proof of a medical appointment or jury duty notice would be limited to Town of Bedford residents. A daily permit would allow a resident to park in the permit parking areas of designated commuter lots.

2) Daily permit sales will be limited to a quantity of 5 permits for each date for Lot 1 ( Jay Street), Lot 2 ( Katonah Ave) and Lot 8 ( Railroad Avenue). Daily permit sales would be limited to a quantity of 10 for Lot 3 ( Woods Bridge Road).

3)Advance sales of daily parking permits will not exceed 3 months prior to the valid date of the permit. Lost permits will not be replaced.

4) Cost of a daily permit is $6. Permits will be available for sale at the Parking Desk in the Finance Office (located on the 2nd Floor, 425 Cherry Street, Bedford Hills, NY 10507) and via USPS mail. Office hours are Monday to Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm. Online daily permits sales will not be available. Payment can only be made via cash or check (made payable to the Town of Bedford). Credit cards are not accepted.

5) Town of Bedford residents will be required to show car registration each time they wish to buy a daily permit. Car must be registered to the resident at their Town of Bedford address. The car license plate and the date of use will be printed on the permit.

Parking permit desk phone number is 666-8097.
