parking at Alewife station

I will be taking a bus from Alewife and need to park around 1:00 pm. Will there be spots? Thank you!

You shouldn't have a problem at that time of day.

There's never a guarantee, but most likely you won't have a problem. There's also an overflow lot there, if the garage itself is full for some reason, the over flow should have spots.

Where is the overflow parking?

Just know that it sometimes depends upon weather and other things. The garage is usually full by about 10:30 a.m., and then after that you are depending upon some cars departing -- and the garage realizing that they now have spaces again.

The overflow lot (which is smaller than it used to be and may be affected by construction right now) is across an intersection and near the Summer Shack restaurant. But -- they are building something in part of the lot now.

Does anyone know if there still IS overflow parking?

I saw people park at 89 Acorn Park Dr, Cambridge front of the new apartment building where has a sign say no parking.Email cambridge and belmont city and been not belong to them. lol

Called tow place been told is not a patrol bases area that they can't tow any car from there.

So is a bland spot where park for free however by 8am it will be full and it needs 10min walk to T.
