Fancy Parking at Harvard

Dear Boston NP friends who drive cars to Harvard Stadium,

You’ve heard the news: Harvard parking department has cracked down on non-paid and illegal parking at the stadium and we are responding by saying, “Gotcha!” and “we’re on it!”

We are considering our options carefully:

  1. we can stop coming to the stadium.  (but this isn’t really an option because that’s silly and unnecessary.  Don’t pick #1)
  2. we can stop driving to the stadium.  (which is a good idea if you can run, bike, walk, or take public transportation.)
  3. we can park elsewhere! (there is plenty of free parking in Allston along the streets — any metered spots are free before 8am. And there are crews of people who are using parking lots at the parks very nearby and doing a healthy .5 mile run to the stadium as a warm up. Join these people!)
  4. we can continue driving and BOTH park in legal, marked spots (good idea!) AND pay for the time you park.  (Using the handy — or not so handy — posts that accept your payment of cash or credit card, as long as they’re working correctly.)
  5. we can carpool and reduce the number of vehicles actually entering into Harvard. (Hell, meet at a spot and park many cars for free, then load everyone into one car that is permitted, per #4)

if you think option 4 is best for you–we have a way to make paying for parking much easier, simpler, fancier, and more fun!

We can now purchase monthly parking passes for $10 that are valid for 4-8am on Wednesdays only.  Special November Project permits.  If you want one for January, (and for each following month) read on.  BOOM!
