NYC Triathlon Parking & Transportation

There are plenty of transportation opportunities for spectators and runners to get to the race.

 

Parking at the NYC Triathlon

To avoid the Race Day stress of finding parking along the countless street closures and traffic that comes with the event, reserve a parking spot in advance with SpotHero. SpotHero offers affordable parking spots near the triathlon, so you will be able to compare spots and rates in advanced. You’ll know where you need to park, so you can concentrate on the race, not the parking.

 

Cab

$15 from the New York Hilton Midtown to Transition (79th Street & Riverside Drive) or to get to the swim start, cab to 96th St. & West End Ave. and walk to the start.

 

Public Transportation

New York City has plenty of subway lines and buses, so a Metrocard purchase can get you to the triathlon easily.
