Welcome

The purchase of 2020 Parking Season Permits and Payment of parking tickets are available to do online HERE.

Thank you for all of your patience while we troubleshoot issues with the new License Plate Read (LPR) technology at MPL and Grace Hall.  If you are a permit holder whose license plate is not being properly read, please email us at awilliams@provincetown-ma.gov or eellis@provincetown-ma.gov so that we can troubleshoot the issue. Please include your license plate and permit number with your request.

Provincetown continues to monitor and adjust public parking operations in response to COVID-19. Permit parking and paid parking at meters, kiosks, and Town lots is in effect. The MacMillan Pier Grace Hall lots are open to permit holders and paid parking; payments are limited to debit/credit cards only, no cash transactions. Neighborhood resident permit parking restrictions are in place. There is no parking on Commercial Street between Johnson Street and Winthrop Street.

Street Sweeping has resumed for 2020 season.

Permits

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!
