If you only need to park at an MBTA lot or garage a few days a month, you can pay for parking by the day.
Daily Parking at Garages
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.
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.
