Guest Overnight Parking

Due to COVID-19, Town Hall is closed to the public. Please submit your temporary permit pre-approval application and all required documentation either
via email to and
via fax at 617-264-6450

All temporary permits that require a fee will be picked up by appointment only. Required fee must be paid either by check made out to "Town of Brookline" or exact cash. The time of your appointment to pick up your permit will be communicated to you via email or phone by Richard Guan or Priscilla Ayati.

Permits will not be processed same day, so please plan accordingly and request permits in advance of needing them. If your guest needs to park the same then you must use the guest overnight spaces in the public parking lots. 

About the Brookline Guest Overnight Parking Program

As a Brookline resident, you may purchase a guest overnight parking pass that will allow a guest to park in a designated parking space reserved by the town for overnight guest parking in selected public parking lots. Parking on-street or in an unauthorized public parking lot is prohibited. A guest overnight parking pass entitles the holder to park in a guest space between the hours of 11 PM and 8 AM. An overnight guest parking pass does not guarantee the holder that a guest parking space will be available in the lot closest to their residence. If you live outside a 1/4 mile radius of the nearest Guest Overnight Parking Lot, you can apply for a guest overnight permit for your street by completing the Temporary Parking Permit Application (PDF). The cost for either permit is $10 per night.

Parking Spaces for Overnight Guests Locations

The town has designated a total of 83 parking spaces for overnight guest use. Spaces are available in:

  • Babcock Street lot - 18 spaces
  • Beacon Street Median / Washington Square lot - 6 spaces
  • Centre Street East lot - 15 spaces
  • Fuller Street lot - 10 spaces
  • Kent / Station Street lot - 5 spaces
  • Kent / Webster Place lot - 16 spaces
  • Webster Street lot - 13 spaces

As a reminder, if the lot has designated spaces via green and white overnight parking signage park only in those parking spaces. If you park in any other spaces, you may be found in violation of the overnight parking ban and be fined.

Purchasing Guest Overnight Parking Passes

Guest overnight passes can be purchased at the multi-space meters located in the overnight parking lots starting at 8 PM. These machines will accept: quarters, $1, $5, and $10 bills, Master Card, Visa, and Discover as payment. Please note that no change or refund is given.

The parking meters are pay by space so no receipt is needed, although we suggest you print one out for your records.

You must purchase the guest overnight pass after 8 p.m. on the day in which you intend to use it. Guest overnight passes expire at 8 a.m. the following morning.
