Daily Parking at Garages

Pay Stations

Daily rates at MBTA garages depend on the length of your stay: 

  • Up to 14 hours: $5 – $7 
  • More than 14 hours: $12 – $15 per day

You can pay as you leave, or prepay for the day (up to 14 hours) at the garage kiosks. We recommend prepaying for your parking in the morning to avoid lines during the afternoon rush hour.

Cash, credit, and debits cards are accepted. 

Garage Tap Card

Some MBTA garages offer tap cards that allow you to prepay for a few days or weeks of garage parking. Tap cards reduce lines at kiosks and make entering and exiting faster.

Tap cards are valid for parking payment at:

Daily Parking at Lots

At some MBTA lots, you can pay the attendant at the gate. Cash, credit, and debits cards are accepted.

At any MBTA lot, you can use PayByPhone to purchase single-day or multi-day passes (5 or 14 consecutive days). If you park at a lot regularly, you may want to get a monthly parking pass.

Please note that if you don't pay before midnight on the day you park, you'll receive an invoice for unpaid parking, which includes the daily rate plus a $0.50 surcharge for processing.
