About Traffic and Parking

Welcome to ParkSomerville! Parking is an important part of living in Somerville. The Traffic and Parking Department works with other departments in the City to make sure that all public roads are safe and accessible. On this page, you’ll find helpful information about parking tickets, permits, street sweeping, and more.

Our department enforces parking and traffic regulations through road signage, parking meters, and other methods. We help departments like Planning, Public Works, and Police and Fire on all matters related to traffic and parking. Working with the City’s Traffic Commission, we also help create rules and regulations for using the City’s roads.

If you’re new to Somerville, visit our New Residents 101 Guide to find information on getting settled.
