Enhance your maps with NYC on-street parking regulations!
What is OpenCurb?
OpenCurb is a comprehensive data feed of on-street parking regulations in New York City for maps used in in-vehicle navigation and personal mobile systems. Data is delivered in
GeoJSON format where each feature is a geometric representation
of parking regulations (see NYC parking map demo and example parking map images below). A line or curb segment, bounded by signposts, indicates whether or not a given vehicle type (Passenger, Commercial, Truck, or Taxi) can perform a given action (Stop, Stand, or Park) during a given time frame. Run helper form below for data feed output examples.
How does it work?
A signpost can be modelled as a set of regulations that specify one or more vehicle types, actions, directions, and time frames.
The regulations of a signpost extend up until the next signpost or end of curb (whichever comes first).
OpenCurb parses the regulations, generating line segments that connect these signposts/curb-ends based upon the values
of the attributes mentioned above. Line segments are drawn parallel to the curb to ensure that they overlay nicely on base maps
including those based on OpenStreetMap (works best), Microsoft Bing Maps, Google Maps, MapQuest, etc.
See documentation for more details. Use the helper form to get an idea of the input and output to expect.
Why should I use it?
Use cases are plentiful. As a mapmaker in the business of NYC parking,
you should spend less time parsing NYC parking regulations, and more time on your business.
If you're in the business of NYC parking tickets, legal street parking, and violations OpenCurb is a must. If you're in the business of off-street garage-parking you may want to supplement your maps with on-street
regulations. If you run a valet parking app, you may choose to provide your employees with the option of locating, and parking at
nearby open curbs. Perhaps you are a navigation dashboard mapmaker looking to go beyond routing, by providing passenger and commercial drivers
parking, standing, and stopping functionality. Whatever your use case is, OpenCurb can certainly help give you an edge in the competition.
Also, it's free...yes, FREE! Registration and API keys are also not required. Get started on building your query strings today.

NOTE: Currently only on-street regulations in Midtown Manhattan (from 30th st to 59th st both East & West) are available.
Data & Services
Please check back later for any updates as terms will evolve over time.
The data in OpenCurb is compiled from multiple sources including New York City Department of Transportation and OpenStreetMap.
OpenCurb strives to update the data accurately whenever reasonably practicable, however due to the unpredictable changing nature of
NYC parking regulations such as temporary signpost regulation changes, it is impossible at all times to reflect changes real-time.
OpenCurb makes no representation as to the accuracy of the data, and disclaims any liability for omissions and errors.
All users are advised to check signposts for compliance. If you encounter an error or omission, please report it.
