The City provides a variety of parking and street occupancy permits.

Resident Parking Permits allow Cambridge residents to park vehicles, including motorcycles, registered in their names at the Cambridge address at which they live to park at locations throughout the City which are posted "Parking by Permit Only."

Visitor Parking Permits allow people visiting a Cambridge resident to park near the resident's home during their visit.

The City of Cambridge does not provide short-term parking permits for summer school students or sub-letters. Individuals seeking on-street parking must meet the eligibility requirements for a resident parking permit.

Street Occupancy permits are available online for residents who wish to park moving vans, moving containers or crates, dumpsters or trucks being used for construction projects on City streets and for special events or block parties. The City posts temporary no parking signs for these permits. If you see one of these signs, read it carefully to ensure that the location at which you are parking is not temporarily a no parking zone.

The Traffic, Parking and Transportation Department must also sign-off on permits issued by other City Departments including curb cut and building permits for large projects.
