Earlier this year, the Select Board approved a convenience fee policy to pass credit card transaction costs to the consumer. A $0.30 convenience fee will be charged to credit card transactions at the parking meters. This fee is equal to the convenience fee assessed to parking meter transactions via the Passport and ParkBoston Apps. The convenience fee is not a revenue to the Town and is directly deposited to the credit card processor. This will go into effect on October 1, 2018.
