PAX East at BCEC Expected to Impact Traffic March 23 - March 26, 2023; Local Parking Limited

From Thursday, March 23 through Sunday, March 26, 2023, PAX East will be taking place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC). This event has a large number of local and regional attendees who are expected to impact traffic in downtown Boston, and especially around the South Boston Waterfront. 


Traffic in the area is expected to be heaviest between 8am-5pm, Thursday-Sunday.


Please note that the MBTA has scheduled a shutdown of the Red Line from Harvard to JFK/UMass on Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, March 26, resulting in a large contingent of shuttle buses.


Attendees, as well as local employees working in and around the South Boston Waterfront, are encouraged to allow additional time for their commute as travel across all modes of transportation is expected to be heavy for this event.


Parking in the South Lot of the BCEC is expected to fill quickly for this event. Additional parking will be offered at off-site lots in the South Boston Waterfront area. Signs will direct attendees to off-site parking. Police details will be in place to help direct traffic and pedestrians.
