The ParkBoston app is available for both iPhone and android or can be viewed on the web at https://park.boston.gov/. Those who own the older version of the ParkBoston app will need to update the app to the new version in the App Store or enable auto-update so that the app will automatically update on launch day. The old version will no longer work after August 15th. To pay for parking using the new ParkBoston app, users will need to create an account, enter the area shown on the stickers and signs around the parking spot, choose the desired parking time and press the ” start parking”. . The ParkBoston app will send alerts when the parking session is about to expire so a user can extend their time right from the app. Those who do not wish to create an account can pay as a guest on the park.boston.gov website.
