City of Boston approves $100 fine for parking illegally in Fenway/Kenmore resident parking spaces on Event Days at Fenway Park
April 11, 2016
The Boston Transportation Department today announced that vehicles parked illegally in Resident Parking Only spaces in the Fenway/Kenmore residential neighborhood when there is a Red Sox game or any other event at Fenway Park will be subject to a $100 fine. The fine increase was implemented in 2015 as a pilot program and permanently adopted this spring.
Baseball fans heading to Fenway Park today are urged to leave their personal vehicles at home and take another form of transportation. Information on Hubway, the regional bike share system, may be found at www.theHubway.com, and information on the MBTA may be found at www.MBTA.com. For a faster return trip, the MBTA advises riders to purchase a round-trip rather than a one-way ticket.
The area surrounding Fenway Park is a densely populated residential neighborhood and the limited supply of on-street parking is needed by and reserved for residents.
“Fenway Park is centrally located and is easy to get to by public transit, bicycle and on foot,” said Boston Transportation Commissioner Gina N. Fiandaca. “If you must drive in to enjoy today’s game, we ask that you voluntarily comply with the on-street Resident Parking regulations and park your vehicle in a garage or parking lot.”
