East Boston Parking Freeze
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.
There are currently two active permits for park-and-fly parking lots with a total of 702 spaces. There are three active permits for rental car parking lots with a total of 2,856 spaces. Click
There are no spaces in the East Boston parking freeze bank. We are not accepting applications for new East Boston permits.
The Air Pollution Control Commission sends information to existing permit holders each year about renewals. You can check online to see if your permit is about to expire. If you have any questions, contact us at 617-635-3850 or APCC@boston.gov.
