MBTA PARKING RATE CHANGE

*effective 8/1/18*

 

On August 1st, 2018, the MBTA will increase weekday parking fees at 32 lots and garages, lower fees at 21 lots, and maintain fees at 46 lots.

Under a new policy adopted by the MBTA control board, drivers will pay higher rates at some of the more popular MBTA garages and see lowered rates at some underused lots.  Starting August 1, weekday parking prices will increase by $2 to $3 per day (30-50%) at 32 stations including Alewife, Braintree, Sullivan Square, and Forest Hills.

 

Remember: BU’s TRANSIT STATION PARKING BENEFIT allows regular faculty and staff to pay for parking at these lots and garages with pre-tax dollars. Go to the “Campus Services” page under the “Employee Self- Service” tab in BUworks to enroll today!

 

A full list of changes by station can be found HERE!

Attention: Red line users (Braintree Line)

Starting on Monday, January 8, 2018, Wollaston station on the Red Line in Quincy will be closed for renovations that are planned to last 20 months. Given the disruption to an existing Red Line station, the MBTA will be setting Quincy Center to Zone 1A and accepting monthly CharlieCard LINK passes on Commuter Rail for trips between Quincy Center and JFK/UMASS and South Station to give riders additional transit options.
 
The only change is riders buying Zone 1 monthly passes to commute to/from South Station or JFK/UMASS to/from Quincy Center, as only a Zone 1A is needed during the disruption.
