Moving to Beacon Hill whether it a Beacon Hill condo or Beacon Hill apartment means you’re now living closer to one of the most exciting downtown areas in the country. While you might be anxious to start visiting the venues, you should know that any trip to the downtown whether Beacon Hill, Back Bay or Seaport area requires you to understand how to handle the parking meters. Whether you own a Boston real estate owner or you’re just visiting, these tips can help you avoid fines and get the most out of the time you’ve designated for parking.

Know When Meters Are Enforced

Parking meters aren’t meant to punish you for visiting the downtown Boston. Instead, they’re meant to regulate the flow of traffic to and from specific areas. For instance, people might be tempted to leave their cars parked in spaces all day if they live nearby. Requiring a fee to be paid deters people from taking advantage of public parking areas. For this reason, the parking meters are only enforced during the busiest hours of the day. Currently, you can expect to feed the meter between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. at most locations. Meters in certain parts of the downtown area, such as Beacon Hill or Midtown remain operational until 8 p.m. To avoid a citation, your best bet is to check the sign before you leave your vehicle.

Be Prepared to Pay the Minimum Fee

Newcomers to Beacon Hill are often confused as to why meters charge their cards more than a dollar when they’re only using spaces for 15 or 30 minutes. This is because there’s a minimum charge that must be paid to use this parking service. In most cases, it’s still well worth paying the charge to have convenient access to the location you’re visiting.

Remember that Even Moving Vans Must Feed the Meter

Moving day is always busy in Beacon Hill, the good news for minimum fee you can reserve parking spaces on the street. The city issues out a poster that you must tape around s tree or light post the day prior to your move-in. 

Respect Parking Time Limits

At times, you may come across parking meters with signs stipulating how long you can remain parked in those spots—most often, it’s for two hours. While it may seem fair enough to simply keep paying the meter, you should be conscious of the other people who need to visit businesses in the area. These time limits are meant to encourage turnover, so try to find a parking spot without a limit if you plan to be parked there for longer than allowed.

Bottom Line

Finding a parking spot in Beacon Hill or Back Bay can sometimes be challenging.
