The parking policy changes stemmed from data collected from the smart parking system installed December 2014. Information collected from Seaport Boulevard, Congress St., Boston Wharf Rd and Summer St. led to adjusting the parking meters on Summer and Congress to manage parking demand. According to the Boston Transportation Department (BTD), these changes will:
- align parking better for true utilization
- spur higher turnover of on-street parking
- help promote parking availability in the neighborhood
If you need to run an errand in the neighborhood, Parker is a smartphone app that can you in finding a parking space. The app provides available parking real time and hand's free directions, along with meter duration. Local businesses can embed ParkerMap on their website to show customers nearby parking options.
