Be careful where you park to avoid having your car towed. When our parking lot is full you should park only in a public parking garage or in approved on-street spaces. Your car will be towed within minutes if you park in any of the lots belonging to the nearby commercial and apartment buildings. The warning signs on the lots may be hard to see, and it will cost at least $95 to get your car back if it is towed.
The Ballston Public Parking Garage in the Ballston Common Mall is only two blocks from CarPool. It offers 2,800 covered parking spaces for only $1 at night and on weekends, and is open 24 hours a day and has 24-hour security. There are many metered parking spaces on the streets around CarPool, and there is no charge for them after 6:00pm Monday through Saturday and all day Sunday.
By Metro: Take the Orange Line to Ballston. When leaving Ballston station, turn left at the top of the escalator until you see the International House of Pancakes and walk in that direction. CarPool is one block past the IHOP on the same side of the street.
