On October 13th, 2020, the Provincetown Select Board voted to extend the Commercial Street Parking Ban.  

Parking Enforcement in all other areas outside of the Commercial Street Parking Ban or Snow Removal Parking Bans is from May 1st through October 31st, 7 days a week, including holidays.

There is no parking on Commercial Street between Johnson Street and Winthrop Street.

Provincetown continues to monitor and adjust public parking operations in response to COVID-19.


With the new parking booths in place at the MacMillan Pier and Grace Hall parking lots, we are rolling out new services to provide parking permits to residents and visitors. We will continue to update this page with more information regarding the new technology as we near the start of the season. THIS helpful walk-through provides a guide to the new online permit portal; if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Town Treasurer Alex Williams. Orange & Black- attack attack!
