Free Parking After 5

The Albany Parking Authority has teamed up with the Downtown Albany BID to offer free street parking starting at 5 p.m. on weeknights and garage parking all weekend at the Riverfront and Green-Hudson Garages (except for special events). It’s never been easier to come to downtown Albany and enjoy the nightlife, featuring some of the area's best restaurants and entertainment venues.


Alive At Five

Plan to enjoy any of the concerts during the Alive at Five concert series this summer? Now you can park at the Riverfront Garage  for just $5. It’s the closest and most convenient parking for the region’s best outdoor concert series!   Parking is also available at the Quackenbush Garage for just $5.


We have been informed that the City’s Water Project will impact your ability to enter Orange Street from Water Street.  Traffic entering the parking garage from Water Street will be detoured around the garage to Columbia Street, Broadway and then on to Orange Street.  Traffic leaving the garage wishing to travel on I-787 southbound will be detoured westbound on Orange Street to Broadway, Columbia Street, and then on to Water Street.  A lane of traffic into and out of the garage will be provided at all times during construction.  The detour is scheduled to begin October 29, 2018 and is estimated to be ongoing for 2 months.

Please plan accordingly.

Albany Parking Authority announces the expansion of the mobile payment app, now available citywide.

Last year, we introduced our test program with pay-by-phone and pay-by-plate technology. After a successful test phase along State Street between Eagle and Broadway, we are excited to announce the launch of the new meters and the ParkAlbany App citywide. This will allow users to pay for parking on the go with their smartphone.

Available to download on the App Store and on Google Play.
