Transportation Department COVID-19 updates
Ticket help for healthcare workers
To make more parking spaces accessible for medical workers, tickets issued near hospitals and care facilities will be waived on appeal. On April 20, the Boston Transportation Department’s ticket amnesty for healthcare workers will expire.
You must appeal the ticket by emailing email@example.com and sharing a copy of the ticket and your hospital ID.
- This policy will expire on April 20, 2021.
- The timeline for healthcare workers to appeal a ticket has been extended to six months.
- With this policy, if a healthcare worker gets a parking ticket before April 20, 2021, for a non-public safety reason (for example, overstaying a meter), the City will waive the ticket upon appeal.
- Exemptions do not include public safety violations, such as blocking a hydrant, sidewalk or handicap ramp.

Temporary parking changes
To address the transportation needs of residents, healthcare providers, and businesses during the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency, the Boston Transportation Department (BTD) updated enforcement regulations and transportation services.
- Beginning September 7, 2021, residents with a resident permit sticker will no longer be allowed to park in a metered or two-hour parking space in their neighborhood without adhering to the time limit or paying a meter fee. All parking violations will be enforced.
- Beginning Monday, March 1, street sweeping will resume in the North End, South End and Beacon Hill, and will resume citywide on April 1. Street sweeping ticketing enforcement will also resume on those dates respectively, and vehicles in violation will be subject to towing. Learn more about the street sweeping update.
