Review from Mwaki Harri Magotswi
Love that I don't need to have quarters with me but strongly dislike the convenience charge. Makes less sense when you consider that parking attendants will know exactly when your meter expires, no one has to collect quarters, and if you get a ticket, there is solid documentation...so really, I should get a discount instead.
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!
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!
Great app. Easy to set up and use. As an out of towner touring Boston for a week, I downloaded and used this app frequently and had no problems. I feel that 15¢ per park a bit much. I've seen some comments of users getting parking tickets, so was apprehensive, but I did not get any.
No quarters No problem Love that Boston city services are finally efficient and easy to use! I did get a ticket once but only because I put a wrong digit in my own license plate number the first time otherwise this app works perfectly!
