    Needham Junction station loses 48 commuter parking spaces

    There are now 48 fewer parking spaces available at the Needham Junction station for commuter rail passengers, according to a notice from the Newton-Needham Regional Chamber. The MBTA had previously leased those spaces from a private property owner, who has decided to lease the lot to a nearby business instead. There are now 131 spaces available for commuter rail parking, all on MBTA-owned property. The MBTA, working with local officials, plans to explore options to provide more parking. Monthly permit holders who want a refund can e-mail mbta@republicparking.com or fill out the MBTA’s Contact Us form at www.mbta.com/customer-support.
