Note: The process for paying your invoice has changed. Pay online or learn about other payment methods below.

There are 2 types of parking tickets you may receive from the MBTA. 

  • Non-payment of parking: These are the most common. Invoices for unpaid parking fees are mailed to the registered vehicle owner on a monthly basis. They include the regular daily parking fee and a $1 surcharge for each day of unpaid parking. 
  • Parking violations: These are less common, and are issued by the Transit Police in orange envelopes. They must be paid through the Plymouth County Parking Ticket system within 21 days.

How to Pay Non-payment Invoices

If you do not pay for parking before midnight on the day you park, you will receive an invoice for every day of unpaid parking in the previous month, plus a $1 surcharge for each.

You can also pay by phone by calling 888-941-9716, or send a check or money order (no cash) payable to “MBTA” to:

  • MBTA Payment Processing Center
  • P.O. Box 845934
  • Boston, MA 02284-5934

Please include your license plate or invoice number on the check or money order. Returned checks will incur a $25 fee.

Late Payments

Failure to appeal or pay the full amount due will result in:

  • 30 days past invoice date: $10 fine per ticket
  • 90 days past invoice date: $20 per ticket and non-renewal of your license by the RMV

How to Pay Transit Police Parking Violations

If you receive a parking violation in an orange envelope from the Transit Police, pay it within 21 days to avoid additional fines. Unpaid parking tickets may result in penalties from the RMV, including the inability to renew your license or registration.
