Parking in Boston is a challenge, on any day of the week. Factor in a sold-out concert at Fenway Park and it could be a frustrating experience, to say the least. Deep breaths and knowledge of how to get there and where to park will certainly help. Consider this your “know before you go” guideline. The best way to get to Fenway or park near the ballpark is here. Below you will find public transportation options, as well as parking options.

This handy guide gives you insight into parking, driving in, taking the commuter rail, the bus or the T. Each section has available links from the MBTA and the Boston Red Sox. Take a look and pass it on, here’s the best way to get to Fenway or park near the ballpark.

If you are coming in for the sold-out Morgan Wallen shows at Fenway this week, join Country 1025 each night for the ultimate pre-party.

  • Driving To The Park

    Driving to Fenway can be a challenge with traffic and parking. And it isn’t cheap to park at Fenway, especially on popular game nights and concerts. Also, keep in consideration that week days are even tougher because of those working in the city. That means less parking available and more traffic. According to the MBTA traffic is especially challenging in the following areas:

    • Brookline Avenue, Beacon Street, and Commonwealth Avenue approaching Fenway Park
    • Kenmore Square
    • Storrow Drive from Leverett Circle to Kenmore Square

    Please note: There are vehicle height and truck restrictions on Storrow Drive. “Buses, trucks and tall recreational vehicles should use the directions for buses to avoid Storrow Drive.” Don’t get storrowed!
