Garage Code Location Information
To be eligible for a City of Cambridge Resident Parking Permit, your vehicle must have a Cambridge garage code as listed on the record for your vehicle in the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles database. You may want to check this information to ensure we can approve your request for a permit if you have recently moved into Cambridge or changed the address at which your vehicle was registered.
To determine whether your garage code is Cambridge see item 5, place of principal garaging, on the Coverage Selection Page your insurance agent sent you when you renewed your vehicle insurance or call your insurance agent. If you need to change your residential address or place of principal garaging, call your insurance agent or the Registry of Motor Vehicles at (857) 368-8000 or visit your local Registry Office. The RMV charges a $25 fee to make this change.
We periodically compare our records of vehicles with Resident Parking Permits with the RMV's list of principal garaging (garage code). We cancel permits for cars that are no longer garaged in Cambridge according to the RMV.
