I really appreciate this service–it’s a great idea to cut down on congestion in and around Boston and boost ridership for former city riders such as myself now commuting from the suburbs and wary of either gas + tolls + wear-and-tear of driving in or fare + time of taking the T.
My concern is this: the Albermarle Park designated spaces are at the end of a long line of spaces for the Park signed as “No Parking 10:30 pm – 7:00 am.” My schedule doesn’t fit neatly into the the 9-to-5 rat race– I regularly go into work for 7:15 am, which would mean doing a park-and-pedal by 6:30 am; other times I don’t get off of work until 11:00 pm which would mean not getting back to my car until at least 11:45 pm. How much of a concern would it be to park my car before 7:00 am and/or not pick it up until after 10:30 pm? I mean I clearly would be parking in one of the designated spaces (or right next to the four if they’re all full), with a bike rack on the back. Are these spaces, as commuter spaces, exempt from the hours-of-parking issue–I don’t want to get towed!!
