Just arrived in the Boston area last week. This may seem a stupid question for you, but is it still possible to find a parking place at the Alewife station between 8:00 and 8:30 am? Am I dreaming?

Thank you very much.

Much more often than not, that garage is already long since full by 8 on weekday mornings. Rule out parking on the street close by - Cambridge requires a resident sticker or else you get towed, unless you're on a street with meters. Neighboring businesses have no compunction about having the vehicles of non-visitors hauled away also.

My advice? Stash the wheels on a side street in East Arlington, then take the 79 bus (which runs along Mass. Ave) in to the station. The "Link Pass" on the Charlie Card, good for buses as well as subways, isn't much more costly than the pass for the subway alone.

You should check on the parking regulations in East Arlington also. I think some of the streets closest to Alewife have gone to 2-hour parking??

If you can park in East Arlington all day, and if you feel comfortable, you can also walk along the bike path to the Alewife station instead of taking the bus. This is a less attractive option in the winter, but a lot of people who live in the neighborhood do it every morning.
