Garage parking

A better way to find an available parking space

Patients and visitors now have an easy way to find the first available parking space in our Tremont Street Garage. Digital signs show the number of open spaces and their locations, including spaces for those with disabilities. . We’re the first hospital in Boston to use this innovative system.

A green light over each open space gives drivers an additional cue to quickly find an open space. The green light changes to red once the car pulls into the space. Spaces reserved for those with handicapped stickers have a blue light instead of a green light.

Feedback from patients and visitors indicates they are very pleased with how fast they can find a space.
