Important Snow Emergency Information for City Parking Garages:

Snow emergency parking rates at city garages (Museum Place and South Harbor) go into effect when the flashing blue snow emergency lights are activated throughout the city. Vehicles entering the garages for snow emergency parking before the blue lights are activated will be charged at the regular rate of 75 cents per hour until the vehicle is removed. Vehicles entering after the snow emergency lights are activated will be charged $5.00 per 24 hours or any portion of 24 hours. Thank you.
(Additional parking is also available at the Salem MBTA Parking Garage on a first come basis. Some spaces will be reserved by the MBTA for commuter parking, and thus not available. The MBTA snow parking rate is $5 per 24 hour period once initiated by the MBTA. The City of Salem does not make the determination on parking availability at this garage. Please note that parking at the City of Salem surface lot adjacent to the MBTA garage is also available during snow emergencies. Parking fees are waived through the duration of the snow emergency.)
