On road trips avoid driving into big cities by parking at commuter bus or train stations

Driving in cities like Boston, New York, and Washington can be intimidating, and parking can cost $20, $30, or even $40 per day in some areas. If you’re using a car to get from city to city, save yourself hassles and money by parking just outside the city limits. Instead of driving into Manhattan, for instance, you could park at the secure and covered garage at the Metro North train station in Stamford, Connecticut, for just $10 per day, paying about $9 to $12 for the one-hour train ride into the city.
