My daughter is attending Berklee for a summer program and needs her car while in the city.

I had used Patriot Parking on Haviland Street in the past but their rates are high ($35.00) when the Red Sox play so they couldn't offer parking at the Garage but had a private lot a block away available for $400.00 per month.

I know its a lot of money, but I haven't found anything better. The setup is sweet because its a small outdoor lot reserved for pass-holders. She doesn't have to deal with an attendant or wait for her car (or drive up ten levels) like some of the other garages in area -

Anyone have any other suggestions?

Default I should have mentioned

They told me they do short-term parking of any length at the private lot for $25.00 day if you are here for a weekend and want to avoid the higher Red Sox Rates.

Knowing what I know of the area, $400/mo sounds like a bargain!

The Westland Avenue Garage, which is nearby, is $325 for a monthly rate.

It would be much cheaper to use public transit, Uber/Lyft, and ZipCar when needed. Unless she plans on driving a decent distance home every weekend a car would be more of a hassle then it is worth.

Why, when and how often does she need her car? There is no straightforward answer to parking in the city and these variables may help you get some creative solutions.

This, 1000 times. There's really no need or desire for a car within the urban area. If she needs to get out of the city regularly, I'd suggest the Commuter Rail and/or Zipcar.
