The two free hours at meters may be used from Friday, November 27, through the end of the day on Saturday, January 2.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Boston Transportation Department are inviting residents and visitors to use the ParkBoston app and receive two hours of free parking at all metered spaces in the City this holiday season.  The two free hours may be used from Friday, November 27, through the end of the day on Saturday, January 2.  The ParkBoston app must be used and code 617617 should be entered to take advantage of this offer.

“I encourage all of our residents and visitors to take advantage of free parking and shop locally in our Main Street businesses," said Mayor Walsh. "By creating incentives to bring people out to our neighborhoods, we are fueling our economy and giving back to our community."

“ParkBoston is a customer service enhancement that allows people to pay by smart phone to park in metered spaces on all local City of Boston streets,” said Boston Transportation Commissioner Gina N. Fiandaca.  “We are pleased that we were able to just recently complete the full implementation of the project to provide this innovative amenity to Boston’s residents and visitors during this busy time of year.”

The free ParkBoston app is available through the App Store or Google Play for IPhone and Android users, and a pay-by-voice option is offered for those without web-enabled phones.  Each ParkBoston account will be allowed the use of this special 617617 code once.

ParkBoston users are encouraged to share this information with family and friends so that as many people as possible can visit their favorite restaurant, shop or theater in the City of Boston over the upcoming holidays.
