Parking Information

A limited number of Seneca Street monthly parking passes are now available for sale through the Chamberlains Office.

No new permits are being issued for the Dryden Road
Garage, as it has reached full capacity. Existing permit holders may still renew their permits.

Seneca St Garage permit holders who want to switch to Green St Garage must come into the Chamberlain's Office to do so. Please make sure that your vehicle is out of the Seneca St Garage when you come to switch. Otherwise you will have to pay the non-refundable $20 "lost ticket" fee to get out because your permit will no longer work in Seneca St Garage.

The City of Ithaca features a number of easy options for parking on-street and in garages.
