Boston Ordinance Bans Selling of Public Parking Spaces

The city of Boston is banning motorists from selling their parking spaces for cash, according to the Boston Globe site BetaBoston.

The outlet reported that Boston's City Council passed an ordinance that prohibits people from "selling, leasing, or reserving of public ways in the city." The move, according to BetaBoston, was "made squarely to counter Haystack, a Baltimore-based startup that allows parkers in the city’s metered spots to sell access as they were leaving to others looking for openings."
