Traffic Advisory: September 25th & 26th, 2015

Beantown Jazz Festival, Jimmy Fund Walk and Other Weekend Events

Boston drivers are advised that special events taking place in the city this weekend will impact traffic and reduce the availability of on-street parking spaces.  Those coming into Boston for the events are asked to leave their personal motor vehicles at home and take the MBTA.  Information on service may be found at www.MBTA.com.  For a faster return trip, the MBTA advises riders to purchase a round-trip rather than a one-way ticket.
