RFK Triborough Bridge: A walkway along the RFK Triborough Bridge runs between 125th Street and 2nd Avenue and the northwestern section of Randall’s Island Park. Note: the ramp on this walkway exceeds ADA code.

All vehicular access is via the RFK Triborough Bridge.  Once on the RFK Triborough Bridge follow signs to Randall’s Island.  If navigating with GPS, please use 20 Randall’s Island Park, New York, NY 10035″ as your destination. MTA Bridges & Tunnels charge a toll of $8.50 to access the Island, but there is no toll upon exiting.

Please Note: Cashless Tolling is now in effect on the RFK Triborough Bridge.  Cars will no longer wait in line to pay the toll in cash, nor will E-Z Pass customers need to stop because the toll booths have been removed.


Ferry service is available in conjunction with major events. Check independent festival, concert and event websites to determine if ferry service will be provided.


Because there is very limited parking on the Island, we encourage visitors to walk, bicycle and/or take public transportation. Free parking is available only in designated parking lots. Tickets will be issued for parking outside designated parking lots.

For major events such as concerts and festivals, a fee will be charged for parking on the Island.

Additional convenient off-island parking for a fee is also available on the Manhattan side of the 103rd Street Footbridge, at MPG Garage 440 E 102nd Street.


Because of much-needed renovation to the RFK Triborough Bridge, MTA Bridges & Tunnels is working at various locations on the Island, which effects traffic patterns for visitors. For more information on construction visit the MTA website.
