I am planning on driving to NYC, and staying in Jersey City to reduce costs.

I will be driving from my hotel to the Journal Square PATH Station to get into Manhattan everyday.

On the PATH website, it says parking is provided by LAZ parking nearby.

But at the LAZ parking website all I get is an info page, and nothing about reservations or costs.

https://www.lazparking.com/local/jersey-city-nj/journal-square---path-garage

Can anyone provide insight as to whether this parking facility commonly fills up, as well as prices. On lazparking.com it does not give a rate for this parking lot.

I am just concerned that if it fills up, it could make for severe complications in my plans.

    There are around half a dozen garages within a few blocks of Journal Square. I would rethink your strategy, though. Parking is not cheap in Jersey City, and traffic will be something of a headache. A NJ Transit bus to the PATH, or to the ferry terminals at Weehawken or Hoboken might be better.

    I want to be able to get back from Manhattan to my hotel at any time. I don't want to be waiting at a bus stop at Midnight. In addition, the bus just adds another step in the process. The PATH from Journal square to WorldTrade runs often and all night, I don't think the ferry does. I just want the most reliable option.

  • @choster the ferry service in Hoboken is infrequent, and the bus station is at the Hoboken PATH station (as are the light rail and conventional rail stations). I work there and the few times I've though of taking the ferry the next departure was more than one hour away. If the schedule matches yours, it might be worthwhile. The ferry also costs a lot more than the PATH.

    I suspect you may need to create an account to get information about making reservations. I didn't create an account, though, so I haven't tested that hypothesis. If I were you I'd try that and then, if that didn't work, call the phone number.

    I can't think of many things that are less fun that driving in Jersey City/NYC. I would just spend a few bucks on an Uber to get to/from the station. You can order them at any time of the day and two trips would cost less than parking your car. Commented May 4, 2016 at 19:57

LAZ have an online reservation system on their website, however it seems to be unavailable for that particular location. However a different site called Parkopedia lists their price list:

Parkopedia shows numerous alternative parking spots in that area, so you shouldn't have an issue finding a spot:

  • It might be a good idea to type the price list into a table for various reasons (readability, images can't be searched, heck if someone wanted to translate the page).
