Could this help with Southie’s parking crisis?  Maybe. It will definitely help! MCCA has launched a new Southie resident parking program for overnight parking for $10 per day or $100 per month.  See press release below.  

Boston- The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) is pleased to announce the launch of the new South Boston resident parking program at the Lot On D. Beginning October 23rd, the program will offer overnight parking for up to 30 South Boston resident vehicles at $10.00 per night or $100.00 per month at the Authority’s D Street property.

Under the new program, daily and monthly participants would be required to enter the lot no earlier than 6:00pm and exit the lot by 7:00am the next day. Any South Boston resident interested in the promotional offer will be required to provide proof of residency through a valid photo ID and their vehicle registration. If the address on the photo ID does not accurately reflect the participants’ current residency in South Boston, then a utility bill, voter registration card or certificate of residency with the valid photo ID are acceptable.

Residents looking to take advantage of this overnight parking program will be asked to register and fill out an application. Monthly overnight parkers will receive an access card that will function between 6:00pm and 7:00am. Daily overnight parkers will receive a credential that allows them to purchase their space online on a day-to-day basis.

The Lot On D is located on D Street across from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in South Boston and sits adjacent to the Element and Aloft hotels. The Lot On D, managed by ProPark America, currently offers daily and monthly parking to the general public in addition to servicing both hotels and event attendees of The Lawn On D.

    Help? For sure. Solve? Definitely not. Really need the MBTA to get their act together if they want to “solve” the problem. What about that waste of space next to Amrhein’s? Looks like a perfect place for another parking garage.

      Also, they approved the gulf station > condo conversion. Who ever you reblog hasn’t posted about it yet, so you may as well get the first take. You’re welcome.

    Like Boston Common parking two levels could be dug under “M” street park. Enter on N exit on M a private contractor could take this on and make a profit from so many cars. Resident parking one price those dodging not registered in Ma more

      Seeing how that M street park renovation went, I’m not sure I feel comfortable with anything the city tries to do around these parts anymore.
