MBTA General Manager Richard Davey today announced a program to provide commuter rail customers with the convenience of purchasing a monthly parking pass. Beginning in February, commuters who park at the MBTA’s “honor box” lots will be able to register for a monthly parking pass. Parking passes can be purchased on line with a credit card which will be debited to a customer’s account each month.
Along with the pay–by-phone system, this new customer service makes it easier than ever to pay for parking. Davey says customers who participate will receive a monthly discount of ten dollars.
Within the next two weeks, more information on this new program will be posted at parking facilities and on line at www.mbta.com.
