Whether you're visiting for a few hours, the day, or overnight, there is a parking option for you in Troy's popular downtown area. To help you choose, we've highlighted what you should know about each one.

On-Street Parking

Editor's Note (2:00PM, May 22): Starting mid-March 2020, metered parking in downtown Troy is suspended until further notice to assist downtown businesses and residents impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. All normal parking regulations will remain in effect.

In 2019, the City of Troy installed downtown parking kiosks/digital pay stations throughout the community. The cost is $1 per hour, for a maximum of four hours. These kiosks are upgrades over the traditional parking meters and are expected to make parking easier for visitors. Once you've received your receipt from a kiosk, you must place it on your vehicle's dashboard.

Within the Central Business District, on-street parking is limited to four hours between 8:30am-4:30pm on Monday through Friday.

Public Lots & Garages

Editor's Note (2:00PM, May 22): Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the City Treasurer's office is working with limited staff. Permit renewal payments must be mailed to the Treasurer's Office with the number of permits needed. The Treasurer's Office will process the payment and send the permits back in the mail.

There are multiple public lots and parking garages located in historic downtown Troy. The city features a monthly permit rate of $60 for all lots and garages, and a daily rate of $8 for non-permitted vehicles.
