If you only need to park at an MBTA lot or garage a few days a month, you can pay for parking by the day.
Daily Parking at Garages
Daily rates at MBTA garages depend on the garage, the day of the week, and the length of your stay. Prices range from $2 to $15.
You can pay as you leave, or prepay for the day (up to 14 hours) at the garage kiosks.
We recommend prepaying for your parking in the morning to avoid lines during the afternoon rush hour. Cash, credit, and debit cards are accepted.
Garage Tap Card
