We have information below about restricted streets in some of the busier parts of Boston.

Keep in mind:

We’ll continue to update this page with information as we get it. Please remember to check the signs posted on the street when you park. While this page is a good resource, the street signs will always have the most up-to-date information.

Have questions? Contact:
Resident parking in the City

Some neighborhoods require a resident parking sticker. You’ll need this sticker to park on the street. We created a page with more information about this process.
