Get SWEEP:BOS and receive notifications to move your vehicle due to scheduled street sweeping, street cleaning and snow emergencies for the City of Boston.

Finally, a way to avoid costly parking tickets or an expensive tow due to street sweeping or snow emergencies.

Between confusing schedules, inconsistent street sweeping and street cleaning dates between blocks, and early tow-times, street sweeping can be a weekly struggle for many city drivers. And worse, when you forget to move your car during its street sweeping hours, you will get towed, a terribly costly mistake.

But those days are over. SWEEP:BOS will help you keep track of where your car is parked as well as your neighborhood's street sweeping schedule and snow emergency routes so you can stop wasting time and money at the tow lot.

-Notifications 24,16,8,4 hrs ahead of sweeping/cleaning schedule
