Westbury rail commuters accustomed to an annual trip to Village Hall to renew their parking permits can once again get the chore done without interrupting the morning rush.

The village says it will handle renewal requests at the train station on Union and Post avenues.

Commuters can renew expiring parking permits there Tuesday and Wednesday between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m.

Village Hall also will extend its hours for permit renewals, and will be open Saturday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and Thursday, Dec. 20, from 4:30 to 7 p.m.

The remote commuter parking renewal program, as it’s called, is in its second year. Mayor Peter Cavallaro said at least 80 commuters renewed their permits at the rail station last year.

“People don’t want to have to take off, and go to Village Hall, or look for it in the mail,” Cavallaro said. Often, he said, “January rolls around and they don’t have a current permit; this way, they can come, stop and get their paper, fill out paperwork and come to the train.”

To obtain a new parking permit, residents are asked to bring a copy of valid vehicle registration, and a check made payable to the Village of Westbury.

For residents, the fee is $65, and for nonresidents, $300 for the year.
