Is there online info on space availability at tube station car parks? I’m wanting to park at a Central line station, Debden or similar, but want to know before I set off if space is available there, or other stations.
Thanks.

Feedback on my experience yesterday.
In the absence of finding any usage info, I opted to use Epping Station as it’s car park was far larger than any others on this line - 541 spaces. I arrived at about 10.30 to find THREE spaces free. And there’s me thinking that working from home was still the vogue!
The other confusing element was payment: NCP run the car park, so I set up the NCP app to pay.  BUT when I get there, the payment app displayed was Paybyphone…. You’d think the webpage would mention that wouldn’t you, but no!

And if that wasn’t exhausting enough, we had two grandchildren in tow….but we survived!!!

Parking is privatised so not part of TfLs» (Transport for London - about) remit. But should you want it TfL Open Data can be found at:
https://tfl.gov.uk/info-for/open-data-users/our-open-data?intcmp=3671
Although if you look under General, Station facilities there is a yes/no field for parking.

"Privatised" can cover a wide range of different arrangements, so that does not really follow.

TfL certainly see it as still "theirs".

Our car parks are located next to the station - ideal if you need to get to and from your car quickly.

We offer all day parking at our station car parks, as well as free blue badge parking. Most locations have CCTV (Closed Circuit Tele Vision) and all have a variety of payment options.

Our car parks are managed by National Car Parks (NCP). See a full list of the car parks, including where they are, on the NCP website.
