Just in time for Christmas: City rolls out parking-meter cards
Just like cash, only lighter! Boston is now selling value cards you can use to "feed" meters instead of coins. The city says they're good at meters across town - but not the multi-space ones or the ones that take credit cards - and if you act now, there's a "holiday sale" on the cards. One caveat: Although you can buy them online, you can only recharge their value at City Hall or the ever convenient city tow lot on Frontage Road.
