Need a Tow Truck in NYC?
Until recently, you had only two options for roadside assistance and towing. You could try to find a provider when you were in a crisis, and attempt to negotiate a fee while sitting on the side of the road. Or you could join an association, paying high monthly fees and then waiting a long time for service. Today, the free Urgent.ly app is a better way. It has been referred to as “the Uber of roadside assistance” thanks to its ability to quickly connect you with a service provider who is close to your current location.
Driving in New York City
New York City is often referred to as simply New York, and is pridefully nicknamed The Big Apple. This world famous city is internationally known for the U.S. Stock Market, award winning theatre both on and off Broadway, historical attractions such as The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, diversity in arts and culture, and so much more. Whether you are a commuting native or a visitor, navigating the roadways in and around New York City can be challenging enough. If you suddenly find yourself searching for “roadside assistance near me”, look no further than the on-demand Urgent.ly app. We are here to help.
New York City is located in the southeastern area of New York State and is situated on Staten Island, Manhattan Island and Long Island. The picturesque Hudson River flows between New York City and New Jersey. The Big Apple is broken out into 5 boroughs: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island. Whether you are commuting into the city for work or to visit, don’t let a car mishap slow you down. Download the Urgent.ly app in the event you need emergency roadside assistance.
Driving in and around New York City may feel intimidating, especially if you are not from an area that is so fast paced. Don’t fret, there are many options that will save some time, and some are more car friendly than other routes. Take the Franklin D. Roosevelt East River Drive over the George Washington Bridge past Queens and the Bronx to get to the east side of Manhattan. This route will give you a view of Yankee Stadium and the Brooklyn Bridge. Accessible on the eastern side of New Jersey, I-78 will take you through the Holland Tunnel to the western edge of Manhattan. On I-495, you’ll travel through the Midtown Tunnel to midtown Manhattan. Plan your trip accordingly, and leave with plenty of time to get to your destination. The Big Apple ranks #5 among the worst traffic cities in the United States. Whether you're driving into the city for work or to sightsee, don’t let a car breakdown ruin your day. If you find yourself with a flat tire or you’ve run out of gas, Urgent.ly is here to help.

New York City, The Big Apple, The City of Lights, The City that Never Sleeps, however you name it, there are so many things to do and see.

"If I could give Urgent.ly a hundred stars I would. I was traveling for work to NYC from New Jersey last month and broke down on I-78 right before the Holland Tunnel. I googled “towing near me” and your app came up. I decided I had nothing to lose, so I downloaded Urgent.ly. The response was fast, efficient and I was back on the road in no time. Thank you so much for the incredible service."
