The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning. Total snow accumulation of 12 to 18 inches is expected. Boston Public Schools will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, March 13. A snow emergency and parking ban go into effect in Boston beginning at 7 PM tonight (March 12).

You may begin parking at participating lots and garages two hours before a declared snow emergency. You must remove your vehicle within two hours of the City lifting the emergency ban. If you don't remove your vehicle in time, you will subject to the standard parking rate.

Some garages only allow residents from certain Boston neighborhoods to park. Other garages allow all Boston residents to park. Please check the "fee and information" section for each garage below to make sure you qualify for the discount.

Space Saver Etiquette
Did you use a trash can, cone, or some other object to save your parking space on the street? Here's what you need to know:

·        You can only use a space saver when the City declares a snow emergency.

·        You have 48 hours to use a space saver after we end an emergency. After that, you must remove it from the street.
