Two hours of free metered parking this weekend

The City of Boston will once again be providing parking incentives during the holiday season— including two hours of free parking on select days at city meters. Boston drivers can also participate in the popular “Toys for Tickets” program and the chance to purchase a Boston Meter Card at 20 percent off the face value of the card.

The two hours of free metered parking will be offered on Friday, Nov. 29. and Sat., Nov. 30; Sat., Dec. 7, Sat., Dec. 14, Saturday, Dec. 21 and Sat., Dec. 28. Parking at the vast majority of Boston’s parking meters is limited to two hours. However, at parking meters where the time limit is four hours, vehicles may park for free for up to four hours on these six days.

Commissioner Thomas J. Tinlin said, “Curbside metered parking is both convenient and free for two hours this Friday and Saturday, as well as every other Saturday prior to New Year’s Eve. Please remember that on Sundays meters are always free in Boston and the two hour limit is not in effect.”
