History of Demand-Based Parking

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.

As of January 2014, on-street rates are reviewed annually using ParkPlus System data. Rates are adjusted by a maximum of $0.25 per year according to demand. Specifically:

  • In areas where occupancy is below 50%, prices will decrease by $0.25;
  • In areas where occupancy is above 80%, prices will increase by $0.25;
  • In areas where occupancy is between 50-80%, prices will stay the same.

Demand based pricing helps ensure on-street parking is managed in a more consistent, transparent, fair and equitable manner. It is currenty used by other major cities such as San Francisco.
