Parking Meters

The Town of Brookline continues to upgrade our metered public parking supply to provide improved customer convenience, ensure a regular turnover of spaces in our high demand areas, and improve municipal maintenance and collection operations.

Brookline has launched a new multi-space parking meter that accepts Quarters, Master Card, and Visa. Instructions on these new meters are:

Paying by Coins:
1) Enter space number
2) Insert quarters until the screen shows the desired length of stay
3) Press OK and the transaction is complete
4) It will ask if you want a receipt and if you do you press OK and get the receipt, if not you can just walk away

Paying by Card:
1) Enter space number
2) Insert Card
3) Press “+” or “-“ button to get to desired length of stay on the screen
4) Press OK and the card will be processed and transaction is complete
5) It will ask if you want a receipt and if you do you press OK and get the receipt, if not you can just walk away

Brookline has launched a pay by phone option with Passport Parking which allows users to pay their meter with their phone or web browser using either the Passport App or the ParkBoston app. View more information.
