Yes, and THAT was insane. I think they're just going to keep jacking it up to see how far they can go.

you're paying for convenience.

you can park at a T stop and save a ton of cash

if you still want your car but are fine walking a bit, i like the courthouse parking - has been 10-13$ - this allows me to get to Fanny Hall to get my fatboy eating on and then I can walk to the garden while i hit up the bars.

I wonder what will happen when ticket prices see the same slight 26% increase.

Ouch, not sure how it works in Boston but in Ottawa, there were plenty of restaurants who had game night shuttles, the only "catch" if you will is you had to order an entree or have a bill of say $20 or greater to secure the "free" ride which I always thought was fair..

I`m not sure if this is still how things are done there but..

Well Jacobs took over the lease from the MBTA.

Doesn't seem much different from the Red Sox numbers.

I went to the game Saturday, parked in an undisclosed on street location, and paid $0. The deals are out there, you just need to look for them.

Nautica did go up to $6 though

Also, they were taking payment before entering the garage, rather than getting a ticket and paying at the window by the Box Office.

Lot of cash floating around yesterday.

Not everyone is familiar with Boston, or with the T. People come from all over New England and beyond to Bruins games, and it's a confusing city.

I take the T sometimes to Sox games from Framingham because it's a straight shot, but if I had to change trains I probably wouldn't. I've been on transport systems in many cities and the only one more confusing than Boston's is New York's.

I used to park at the Garden because I often went with a friend and we split the cost, but since she's moved, I've become more familiar with the area, and the prices are insane, I'm parking at the Nautica now (and thanks to the posters who suggested it).

Yes, Arty, Boston is a cow path city. It sucks. I am not a Boston native and live in a town of 800 people in rural NH.

But the costs are that high because people keep paying it, if people go to cheaper garages, take the T or a train, then there won't be the demand for that parking and prices should conceivably go down.

Thats it in a nutshell.

Doesnt matter if its parking, tix, or price of a hot dog.

Supply & Demand determines price. Always has and always will.

there are maps for the T everywhere and plenty of people to ask.

It isnt that confusing.

$34 is an outrage.

not knowing the city is a reason to take the T instead of drive not a reason to drive instead of take the T.

At least how I see it. If you don't know where you are going in Boston your better off taking the T because driving in the city is insane.

If you're upset at the cost, maybe you should stay home and watch on TV instead? Parking wouldn't cost you a thing that way...

The T confuses the hell out of me. I've tried to take it and always end up lost. If I'm spending any time in Boston I get a hotel close to where I want to go and walk.

When I visit my brother in D.C. or my cousin in London I'll take the trains/subways all day, no problem. Boston, forget it.

thats good to hear about D.C. my brother is moving there next month well just outside. It will be nice to be able to go visit without getting lost.
