Mayor Stephanie Burke Announces Enhancements to Park Medford Program

Mayor Burke is pleased to announce that several changes have been made to the parking program in the City of Medford.  The goal is to make the program as simple and efficient as possible. 

Senior Citizen Parking Permit

 The City of Medford has launched a Senior Citizen Parking Permit for seniors 65 and older who will be able to purchase one-year parking permits for $25. Permits can be obtained at the ParkMedford office (557B Main Street Medford).   This permit also allows our seniors to park for three hours in currently marked two hour zones.

 Eligibility:

▪ Residents must be 65 years of age *  Valid Driver’s license

▪ Registered vehicle in Medford * Copy of registration with Medford address

Restrictions:

▪ Must stay within time limits for 15 min, 30 min and 1 hour parking zones

▪ Residents will be allowed 3 hours in the 2 hour parking zones

▪ Must park in legally recognized parking spaces

▪ Permit is only eligible when the permit holder is operating or a passenger in the vehicle

Violation of restrictions may result in a citation or revocation of permit

Business Add-on

 Eligibility:

Any business that signs up with Park Medford is eligible to participate in this program. 

Benefits:

▪ Business owners will be able to set up accounts with Republic to pay for additional time for customers.

▪ By adding time, your customer has the benefit of forgoing the normal timed parking limit.

▪ Your customer does not have to go back to their vehicle to add any additional time to the meter/kiosk.

Your customer does not need to move their vehicle to another spot. 

Park Medford Phone App

 As of July 1, 2016, the City of Medford has entered into an agreement that will reduce the cost to use either the Park Medford or ParkMobile phone application from $0.35 per transaction to $0.05 per transaction for Medford residents. It will also reduce the cost for non residents to $0.30 per transaction.  The Park Medford phone app can be downloaded on all IOS and Android devices. By using the App you can pay for your parking at any parking kiosk or meter in the City of Medford without needing to pay the meter or kiosk directly.

 Later in the summer, a ParkMedford card will be introduced that will work similar to the MBTA’s Charlie card.  It will have preloaded funds on it including your license plate number. 

“We hope these changes make it easier for our residents to utilize the parking program and more importantly, frequent our small businesses throughout the community,” said Mayor Stephanie Burke.
