The MBTA says that starting July 1, it will start offering "premium" parking spaces for $200 a month at the Braintree Red Line stop that will give purchasers guaranteed spots near the station entrance.
The new program, similar to one at Logan Airport, is experimental, but could be expanded if successful, the T says.
Also starting July 1, the T is cutting the price of parking at underused lots to $3 a day or $60 a month: Kingston, Halifax, Campello, Fairmount, Hyde Park, Newburyport and Lynn on commuter rail and Butler, Milton and Mattapan on the Mattapan Line.
Also starting then, higher fines for people who don't pay their daily parking fees - from $1 to $21. Also, the Registry of Motor Vehicles will be notified, so scofflaws will have to pay up before they can renew their car registrations.
