Are there differences between monthly permits purchasable via the MBTA/PayByPhone website & monthly permits purchasable via the PayByPhone app?
Yes. There are a few differences between a permit purchased on the websites and a permit purchased on the mobile apps. Please find specifics below:
To purchase a monthly permit for all other MBTA locations, please visit this webpage. Note: This option will be removed on March 26, 2022
Permits purchased through the PBP mobile apps will not auto-renew at the beginning of the next month (you will be required to re-purchase a permit on a monthly basis).
Roaming abilities are not available for permits purchased through the PayByPhone app. You will not be able to use your permit in other MBTA locations whose parking rates are equal or less than in value. PayByPhone app-based permits are recommended for users who frequently park at the same location.
Purchase 30 days worth of parking from any day as opposed to the beginning of end of month, giving you more flexibility!
Can I update my permit to associate it with a different vehicle than when I purchased it?
Please contact PayByPhone customer support to change a vehicle associated with a monthly permit. A credit or refund may be issued depending on the situation.
What location code should I use?
There are two codes for each location. The daily parking has a 4 digit code and the monthly parking number is the same code + 9999. As an example: Gloucester is daily parking 4233 and monthly parking 42339999
