letters | our parking spaces, ourselves

We can’t very well carry our cars on the T

While I understand the desire to encourage the use of public transportation, limiting the construction of new parking spaces is not the way to do it (“City wants a cutback on new parking,” Page A1, July 5). If a resident owns a car, that person needs a place to park, even if he or she is taking public transportation to work.

At this point, our transit system is not extensive enough to serve the residents of Boston and its suburbs. Until that happens, residents need parking spaces.


Boston is not like New York City — yet.
