Before you get started, here’s some background information if you’re looking to save money.
1. Be flexible about location to save over $300 – Some areas of Boston are considerably more expensive for monthly parking than others.
Consider looking in a 5-block radius of your ideal location for the best luck at getting a lower rate. The closer you get to downtown Boston, the more expensive it will be. Check on public transportation availability near your monthly parking spot.
2. Don’t pay for more access than you need – If you don’t use your car every day, don’t pay for a monthly parking spot with unlimited ‘in and out’ access. There are usually different rates for different access levels. Ask your parking provider about discounts for infrequent use. We recommend negotiating here.
3. Ask about timing discounts – If your parking needs are the opposite of most people in the area, you might be able to get a discount from the garage.
For example, if you live in the Financial District, where many people drive to work, but you only need parking during nights and weekends, you might be able to get a cheaper monthly rate. It never hurts to ask!
4. Book a spot online – To make sure you’re getting the best Boston monthly parking deal and saving time, we recommend comparing your options with an online parking service. Many of the spots listed online are already discounted, and their location and accessibility are also described online.
If you’re short on time and don’t want to call around, we’ve highlighted the neighborhoods with the best rates available for booking online.
Here are the most affordable areas in Boston for monthly parking:
If you are particular about certain amenities for your monthly parking spot, it’s worth putting in a bit of extra research to make sure you get it right. To make it easier for you, we address two important amenities below: month-to-month rentals and valet garages.
If you’re looking for a monthly spot you can pay month-to-month rather than committing to multiple months at once, it can be a bit trickier. This is especially true for those who will only be working in Boston for a couple months, or if you simply don’t want to commit to one spot long-term.
We did some research and here are 12 garages in Boston that let you pay for monthly parking month-to-month:

Depending on where you want to park, rates can vary. The Financial District is the most expensive, with monthly parking ranging $400 to $540.
Parking near the Seaport District is a bit cheaper, running from $190 to $400. Some parking garages also provide reserved spots in the same location for an additional cost.
3. Where is the cheapest monthly parking in Boston?
According to SpotHero, the cheapest monthly spot in Boston is at Christian Science Plaza Garage at 235 Huntington Ave. at $120 a month. However, this garage has limited hours and is a 34-minute walk to downtown.
4. Is there monthly parking for my motorcycle?
Boston is very friendly to motorcycles and scooters as part of Boston’s “Green Initiatives.” Newbury and Boylston Streets offer metered parking for .25 cents per hour. Motorcyclists can also feed the meter here, allowing them to park all day without moving.
If you’re looking for winter parking or storage for your motorcycle, Craigslist is probably your best idea. Make sure the spot is heated and allows you 24/7 access.
If you live in a house or apartment without a parking spot in Boston, then you know how challenging it is to find affordable, convenient overnight parking in the city.
Our advice? Book monthly parking online for night-only parking. Overnight parking rates are more affordable than 24 hour access monthly parking options.
