    Toys For Tickets

    In keeping with a successful holiday tradition in Boston, Mayor Thomas M. Menino announced that any driver issued a non-public safety parking ticket on Boston’s streets between December 2 and December 4 may resolve their ticket by providing a non-violent, wrapped toy of equal or greater value than the fine on the ticket. Drivers who would like to participate must bring the parking ticket as well as a receipt for the toy.

    Free Holiday Parking

    The City of Boston will be offering two hours of free parking at the City’s parking meters on the following six days this holiday season.
    Friday, November 28
    Saturday, November 29
    Saturday, December 6
    Saturday, December 13
    Saturday, December 20
    While payment at meters will not be required on these six days, the time limit on the meters will be in effect and enforced in order to give as many visitors as possible a chance to take advantage of this opportunity. 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.
