Today, Mayor Menino announced in a statement that parking at meters on Boylston Street, as well as throughout the entire Back Bay, will be free today through Sunday. The City encourages all to come back to the area, go to our restaurants, go to our shops and get involved in the recovery effort.
“Boston is strong and we will support Boylston Strong all weekend long,” Mayor Menino said.
He continued, “As of today, these businesses that have been off limits since Marathon Monday are open and are looking forward to receiving and serving their customers once again. To support the efforts of our local businesses through the end of the weekend, the City of Boston is offering free parking at meters on Boylston Street and throughout the entire Back Bay.”
The meters in question are located on all Back Bay streets between Arlington Street and Massachusetts Avenue, as well as those parking meters adjacent to the Public Garden.
