Main Campus Parking Garage
Open 24 hours a day, the Children's parking garage is located across the street from the hospital's Main Entrance. It is at the corner of Blackfan Circle and Longwood Avenue. The garage operates under the Central Paystation system in order to make exiting the garage more efficient for parkers. Parkers will need to take their tickets with them when they leave their cars. Before returning to their cars, parkers must take their tickets to the new paystation located in the garage lobby. The cashiers will process the ticket and hand it back to the parker. The parker can simply place the processed ticket in the exit gate of the garage to leave.
