In May 2013, City Council approved a new on-street parking policy. As of July 1, on-street parking pricing is based on demand and paid parking is divided into 27 pricing areas.
Starting January 2014, on-street rates will be reviewed annually using ParkPlus data. Rates will be adjusted by a maximum of $0.25 per year according to demand. Specifically:
Demand based pricing helps ensure on-street parking is managed in a more consistent, transparent, fair and equitable manner. It is currently used by other major cities such as San Francisco.
As of January 1st, 2014, rates have been adjusted according to the demand for parking in the specific parking areas. Changes to prices occur based on four different time periods during weekdays and one time period on Saturdays for each area.
Prices have gone down $0.25, up $0.25 or remained the same, depending on the demand in each time period for each area. To view a series of maps that illustrate the changes that occurred on January 1, 2014, please click here.
Information on pricing in specific zones is available on the on-street occupancy map.
