BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston residents will have more options for free parking as they stay home during the coronavirus pandemic, according to Mayor Marty Walsh.
At a press conference on Sunday, Mayor Walsh said the city's residents who have a valid residential parking sticker are now allowed to park in metered or two-hour parking spaces in their specific neighborhood with no time limit or meter fees.
"Until further notice the Boston Transportation Department will no longer be issuing tickets for expired inspection stickers or registrations," Mayor Walsh said. "We start street cleaning this week, but there will be no ticketing or towing for street cleaning."
Mayor Walsh also reminded the city's residents that tickets will be issued for those parking in front of cross walks, fire hydrants, or in handicap spots, even if only for a short period of time.
