carpoolThere will be many more attendees at this year’s conference than there are available parking spots at the Convention Center.

We strongly encourage public transportation, followed by ride sharing (Uber, Lyft) or carpooling. Grab a group of friends or colleagues and extend your #MassWomen networking to and from the conference!


TAXIS

Uber/Lyft pick-up and drop-off locations can be found at Eastside Drive Cutout (across from Westin) and along D Street (see map).

The MCCA informs taxi drivers and taxicab companies serving the South Boston area prior to this event of the event dates and expected break times. The marquee sign in front of the BCEC will show a message at the break of the event saying “BCEC needs cabs” which can be seen throughout the Seaport District.


PARKING

On-Site

Parking at the BCEC is $25 for self-parking ($50 for oversized vehicles). Parking on-site is limited; if you plan to park on site, please plan to arrive early. If you are arriving after 8:00 am, you should plan to go directly to the off-site lots to save time.

Accessible parking spaces are located in the BCEC South Lot, closest to the building. The same general parking rates apply to the accessible parking spaces.

Valet parking is not available at this time.

Overflow Parking

In addition to the parking available at the BCEC, parking is also available at several private lots and garages throughout the South Boston Waterfront. Once the parking at the BCEC fills, attendees will be directed to off-site parking at the Channel Center Garage, as it is the closest to the BCEC, and typically has 400 spaces available for attendee use.

Attendees will be given directions at the BCEC to direct them through the South Parking lot and out to the Channel Center Garage. If attendees are directed from the Convention Center’s lot to park instead at Channel Center, a complimentary parking shuttle will run throughout the event between the BCEC and the Channel Center Garage.

Channel Center Garage: 116 West First Street, Boston, MA 02210. Approximately 400 spaces available. This garage is privately owned and operated; please see this parking website for details and rates
