(NECN: Kathryn Sotnik, Boston) – Getting to Fenway Park for World Series Game 6 may be difficult for some. Boston Mayor Tom Menino has said repeatedly ‘don’t drive, take public transportation.’ It’s all part of the equation to make the night a safe and fun event.
Menino said the idea behind the parking restrictions were to keep the whole Fenway area safe and Fenway unclogged.
The Fenway frenzy began early Wednesday. Parking bans were in effect before Game 6, and tow trucks were waiting. Hours before the first pitch, off-street spots were going for as much as $60.
Parking restrictions went into effect at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Mayor Menino has urged fans to take public transportation, including the T.
Many fans took his advice and used the T to get into the city.
Mayor Menino also asked downtown Boston businesses to let workers leave early to help thin the traffic. Officials have also warned people who come to the game can expect to be stuck where they are for quite some time after it’s over.
The Boston Mayor says your best bet is to leave your car outside the city.
