Parking in the Village is very limited. On-street parking is only allowed on one side of most streets. No Parking is allowed on any street between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. for reasons of safety, snow removal, and street sweeping.
If your car cannot be driven or you have special needs (such as a party, or your driveway is being resurfaced) please advise the Riverside Police Department and we will try to accommodate you. Other parking restrictions vary by area.

Commuter parking is available in 2 places:
Lot 1 is south of the tracks, west of the train station. Some metered spaces are paid by the hour/day and some are sold as quarterly permits. The spaces with blue number signs are for metered parking, and the spaces with brown number signs are for quarterly permit holders only. The cost is $130 per quarter for commuters or $175 per quarter for 24-hour parking.
Lot 8 is located south of the tracks, east of the crossing. These spaces are only for permitted daily commuters at a cost of $130 per quarter.
There is generally a short waiting list (1 – 3 months) for spaces in Lot 1 and a longer waiting list (approximately 5 - 6 years) for spaces in Lot 8. Please contact Debby Walter to be placed on the waiting list. You will be called as soon as something becomes available.
The spaces in Lot 1 with blue number signs are metered. The meter machine is located on the west end of the train station platform. Remember the number of the space you park in and enter that number into the machine.
Payment can be made by cash, credit card, with your phone via app, website or phone number. Signage explaining payment options is located above the machine. The meters cost 25 cents per hour, and can be programmed for up to 24 hours at a time. These spaces are free on weekends, from midnight on Friday until midnight on Sunday, and holidays.
Permit holders must renew each quarter by the deadline or they will lose their space. The Village will mail out renewal notices, however, it is the permit holder’s responsibility to pay by the deadline even if the paperwork is lost. The deadlines to renew for each quarter are December 15, March 15, June 15 and September 15.
There may be a waiting list for residential and commuter parking lots. To be placed on the waiting list, fill out the Permit Parking Waitlist Form or contact Debby Walter in the Finance Department. The typical wait time for a residential parking space is 2 - 4 months. You will be called when a space is available.
