Mobile Food Truck: GPS Systems
The Mayor's Office, Public Works, Transportation, Inspectional Services, and Fire departments have developed a single application process for procuring a Mobile Food Truck Permit. In addition to the Mobile Food Truck Permit, Food Trucks must also secure permits from Inspectional Services, Boston Fire Department, and the State of Mass to ensure the safety and health of the Food Truck, vendors, and customers prior to operating in the City of Boston.
