One of the major complaints prior to the highly-anticipated opening of Encore Boston Harbor, the cost of self-parking, has reportedly been addressed.

Wynn Resorts has eliminated the cost of self-parking at its Everett facility, which ranged from $22 for up to six hours, and $42 for 24 hours.

According to local media reports

…the $2.6 billion, 3 million-square-foot luxury resort and casino situated on the historic Mystic River waterfront in Massachusetts announced on Friday that use of its self-parking garage will now be free of charge to all guests every day of the week.

Visitors already enjoyed free access to parking in any one of the 1,960 parking spots since August.

Highly-appreciated amenity:

Commenting on the recent change, president of Encore Boston Harbor, Robert DeSalvio, said…

“Free self-parking is an amenity that is highly appreciated by all of our guests. After a very successful weekday introduction, we are pleased to now offer free self-parking seven days a week to show how thankful we are to be Greater Boston’s hometown casino.”

Other modes encouraged:

Prior to the June 23, 2019, opening of Encore Boston Harbor, mass transportation was the means of transportation Wynn Resorts encouraged all guests to utilize to get to the facility.

In an effort to address transportation and traffic concerns, harbor shuttles were also launched, along with local and regional shuttle buses to get people to and from the resort.

Orange Line shutdowns:

The announcement from the Las Vegas-based operator is in advance of several weeks of planned shutdowns of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA) Orange Line, one of the authority’s four subway lines, to reportedly address looming rehabilitation issues.

According to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s August 2019 Gross Gaming Revenue report released last month, Encore easily topped the state’s other two casinos having generated $48.6 million in gambling revenue for its first full month of business.
