New Daily Parking Rates at the First Street and Green Street Garages

caution sign The information on this page may be outdated as it was published 3 years ago.

Effective February 1, 2021, the Cambridge Traffic, Parking, and Transportation Department will increase the daily parking rates at the First Street and Green Street garages. Night, weekend, and monthly parking rates are not increasing at this time. The daily rate increases are being made to bring rates at the two garages in alignment with other garages in the area. Considerations have been made to ensure rates remain modest to accommodate the needs of people who use the garages. Most people who park during the day will see a $2.00 to $4.00 increase in the total fee.
