PLEASE NOTE: The MBTA is not currently accepting applications for new pushcart locations. The MBTA does not offer seasonal pushcart applications. The MBTA offers two types of licenses, a twelve (12) month license and a 6 month seasonal license where applicable and determined by the MBTA Real Estate Office. The shortest term available is six (6) months. For more information, please contact Donna Hill in the MBTA Real Estate office at 617.222.3428.
Obtaining a license to operate a pushcart is available by application only. Completing an application does not guarantee that you will receive a location. If approved, you will be issued a six (6) month or a one (1) year license, which is renewable after the first year. Licenses are automatically renewed for the following year if vendor is in compliance with rules and regulations of the push cart agreement. Vendor would be notified if for any reason their license is not renewed. If you are interested in pursuing a license to operate a pushcart on MBTA property, please follow the steps below.
