East Boston Parking Freeze

Last updated: 1/24/18

East Boston Parking Freeze

The East Boston parking freeze is one of three parking freezes in the City of Boston. The Air Pollution Control Commission manages these freeze areas.

The City created the freeze area in 1989 under rules set by the state Department of Environmental Protection (310 CMR 7.31). The East Boston parking freeze limits the availability of:

  • park-and-fly parking spaces, and
  • rental car parking spaces.

About the East Boston parking freeze


The City adopted regulations for the East Boston freeze in 1992. The freeze works in conjunction with the Massport/Logan Airport parking freeze (310 CMR 7.30). The Massport freeze caps the number of commercial and employee parking spaces at Logan Airport.
