The Boston Marathon and the Patriots Day Parade will take place on Monday, April 18, 2022, and the the B.A.A 5K & Invitational Mile will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2022. Street closures and parking restrictions will be in effect in the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Brighton, Fenway-Kenmore, North End and Government Center.
The city has urged those coming into the city for the events to not drive, but rather use public transportation. Information on Bluebike rentals may be found at bluebikes.com and public transit information can be found at mbta.com. For a faster return trip, the MBTA advises riders to purchase a round-trip rather than a one-way ticket. Walking is also a great way to move around Boston.
The city advises people to read all posted signs and variable message boards carefully for updates.
