GREAT app; so simple to use. Takes about 2 minutes to set up initially, and about 10-15 seconds each time at the meter. It's faster than finding quarters and putting them in the meter. You can use CC or a prefunded account that you create. No issues or bugs that I've come across and I've been using it every day. No more worrying about bringing quarters everywhere, plus you can add more time to your meter remotely from your phone, no more running out to the curb anymore. You can even call customer service / support from the app if you're having trouble. I love when the internet is used for common sense things like this.
So fast This is so much faster than paying with quarters because I don't have to scramble and find them. I can pay the minimum and keep extending it as I know how long my stay will be so I end up paying less. The only downside is you have to move your car to a different street (different zone) instead of a new spot a few cars up after the max time.
Park Boston Not a Good Experience! So I went to visit my fiancée in the hospital on a Saturday and used the Park Boston app to pay for my parking. I made sure everything was correct and confirmed the space was payed for between 12:25-2:25 pm. My car was ticketed at 1:15 pm and to fight the ticket I would have lost time from work plus paying for more parking (some other way, of course!) Not worth losing twice the cost of the ticket so we just paid the $25 and vowed never to use this again. Highly unrecommended!
Credit unused time? Would love an option to end session early, if I sign up for the full time allowed at the meter but leave halfway through there's no way to claim that money back. The meter cards can do this, the app should be able to as well.
Saves me on tickets This has saved me $100s in parking tickets. The most useful app on my phone! The only thing I wish it did was when you move and park some where else in Boston I can't roll over any time I've already purchased. If it did that it would be 5 stars!
Piece of crap Proceed at your on risk with this crap. I paid my meter, and still got a ticket. Meter started at 2:45pm and ticket is dated 2:46pm, so clearly the Boston police is faster than the information sent from the app. At least they could reconcile the information and clean up their own mess when they notice tickets are being issued after payment. But clearly it's more practical to put the burden on drivers. Shame on Boston city!
