The 2022 Truck Route Map is now here! The new map:
- Reviews changes that highlight NYC DOT programs to improve the efficiency of movements of goods and services through the city
- Includes information on the new double-parking regulations:
In NYC, it’s considered double parking when you stand or park your vehicle on the roadway side of another vehicle that is stopped, standing, or parked at the curb. Commercial vehicles may double park for 20 minutes or less while actively engaged in loading or unloading goods, tools, materials, or other items for the purpose of making pickups, deliveries or service calls under the following circumstances:
- This is outside of the Midtown Zone from 7 AM – 7 PM from Monday to Saturday. The Midtown Zone is defined as between 14th St and 60th St from 1st Av to 12th Av (see map).
- When the posted regulations allow stopping, standing, or parking during that time.
- There are no unoccupied parking spaces or designated loading zones on the same side of the street within the same block.
- You are not blocking a bicycle lane or the only lane of travel in the same direction.
- Leave more than 10 feet of roadway width available for free movement of vehicular traffic.
- It does not violate any lawful order or direction from a police officer or flag person or other person duly empowered to regulate traffic.
- Updated bus only lanes and busway information
- Information on the types of curb regulations
- Addresses discrepancies from the previous version
- Identifies points of low clearance (< 14 ft. vertical clearance) structures along truck routes
