Parking Solution for Harding Commuters: An App Called “Boxcar”
Parking for Harding Township residents who want to take a train into New York City was eliminated over 10 years ago when the Borough of Madison limited parking passes to their residents only. Since then, Harding commuters had few choices. Some deciding to forego mass transit altogether and drive to Jersey City or all the way into the City. Others get dropped off in the morning and picked up in the evening.
Now there may be a solution. Committeeman Nicolas Platt, a frequent commuter to New York City, tells us about a new app called “Boxcar.” It’s a service that has an arrangement with owners of parking lots a short walk from the Madison, Convent Station, Morristown and Chatham train stations. Commuters can reserve a designated parking space for as little as $3.00 per day. The reservation can be done that morning or days in advance.
To get the app, go to the Apple app store, and search for the “Boxcar” transportation app, download it, and set up an account. Boxcar’s telephone number is 908 485 7275. Mr. Platt says it worked well.
