Parking is at a premium in Provincetown. Illegally parked cars are ticketed (even on Sun), and repeat offenders will be towed. If your inn provides parking, you may want to keep your car there and get around on foot, bicycle, or shuttle. Provincetown's Summer Shuttle (tel. 800/352-7155) loops through town daily every 20 minutes late June to mid-September from 7am to 12:30am, traveling all along Bradford Street, to MacMillan Wharf off Commercial Street, and all the way to North Truro. The beach loop travels to Herring Cove every 20 minutes from 9am to 7pm. Riders may flag down the bus at any intersection on Bradford Street. Service continues through October in Provincetown only, without the Truro stops. All rides cost $1 for adults, 50¢ for seniors and kids 6 to 17.

If you do drive into town, most inns have space for one car per room. Additional cars need to be parked on the street (and moved on "trash day"). Free street parking spaces can be almost impossible to find in high season. There are also several public and private parking lots throughout town that charge metered and day rates.
