2019 Cambridge Resident/Visitor Parking Permits to Expire August 15, 2020

The City of Cambridge announced today that all 2019 Resident and Visitor Parking Permits will expire on Saturday, August 15, 2020. After this date, vehicles without 2020 Parking Permits will receive tickets when parked in areas designated “Parking by Permit Only.” Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Cambridge had previously been extending the expiration date of 2019 Resident and Visitor Parking Permits.

Residents who still need to renew 2019 Parking Permits can renew online, by mail, or in person. Applications submitted online or by mail must be sent in before July 31 to ensure time for processing and mailing. In order to be eligible for a Parking Permit, residents must:

  • Pay any outstanding parking tickets;
  • Supply proof of residency (one utility bill that shows the name and the Cambridge service address or two pieces of mail that show the name and Cambridge address) that is dated within the previous 30 days; and
  • If applying for a Resident Parking Permit, ensure that the name and address on the registration match the proof of residency, the vehicle is registered in Massachusetts, and the registration has a garage code of Cambridge.

Residents should visit CambridgeMA.Gov/Parking-Permits, email, or call 617-349-4700 to review eligibility requirements and find more information about how to renew online, by mail, or in person. The Traffic, Parking, and Transportation Department is open by appointment only, Monday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – noon.

The City of Cambridge is committed to identifying new resources to help residents and businesses navigate this difficult time. For more information and to sign up to receive updates on COVID-19, please visit the city’s dedicated information page CambridgeMA.GOV/COVID19.
