The fee is typically $5-$10. This lot is known to fill up early. If you’re coming into town from the North on Rt 209, then you’ll see the train station on your right as you approach the traffic signal. Bear right at the signal and proceed a few more yards until you see the parking lot on your right. If you’re coming down Rt 903 from Route 80, proceed into the east side of town and over the Lehigh River Bridge and go left on Rt 209 to the parking lot.
