I think these parking spaces will be well utilized, especially since the Bedford St. Mechanical Garage and the Winthrop Sq. municipal garage were eliminated without replacement. Also remember that parking spaces in Boston and Cambridge have been artificially suppressed by the EPA consent decree since the early 1970's, yet emission controls are ~~>75% better than they were then. Maybe Amtrak passengers want to be able to park & take the train from South Station.
