NEW YORK, September 23, 2015 – Parking in Manhattan will be scarce this week thanks to the myriad of parking restrictions for Pope Francis’ visit. SP+ Parking, which has parking facilities throughout New York City and New Jersey, will be offering convenient parking options to visitors and commuters such as parking specials and guaranteed parking with a reservation.

SP+ will provide daily parking near major transit hubs in the outer-boroughs and New Jersey, where drivers can park and take mass-transit into Manhattan. For those who prefer to drive into the city, they can visit http://nycparking.spplus.com/Events/Manhattan-Pope-Francis-Visit-Parking or use the SP+ Mobile App available on the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore to find parking near their destination and book parking in advance.

“We understand some street closures and ‘no parking’ restrictions enforced during the Pope’s visit will pose major challenges for travel,” said Hector Chevalier, Executive Vice President of SP+ New York Tri-State Division. “We hope that by offering these parking options, we can help ease traffic and congestion, and reduce the amount of stress on visitors and commuters.”
