The city Department of Transportation is preparing to implement rate increases at parking meters citywide.
The first take effect in Brooklyn starting in September.
According to a DOT release, the amount of the increases will depend on meter type, commercial or passenger, and by location.
The rollout of the new rates is as follows:
- Brooklyn – September 4, 2018
- Manhattan – October 1, 2018
- Queens – November 1, 2018
- Bronx – December 3, 2018
- Staten Island – December 3, 2018
In Manhattan, commercial meters in parts of Lower Manhattan and Midtown to 59th Street will go up by two dollars from $4, $5, and $6 for the first, second, and third hour to $6, $7, and $8, and go up one dollar per hour elsewhere below 96th Street.
Passenger parking meter rates in the same areas will increase from $3.50 per hour to $4.50 and from $3.50 per hour to $4.00 per hour elsewhere south of 96th Street.
From 96th to 110th Streets rates will increase from $1.50 to $2.50 per hour.
The DOT adds a "new, progressively priced second hour of passenger parking will be provided for $7.50 in the Manhattan core and $6.75 in the rest of Manhattan below 96th Street, to offer a little extra time for those who need it while still promoting curb availability."
In the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, core area rates will increase from $1.00 per hour to $2.00 per hour, while other corridors will go up from $1.00 per hour to $1.50 per hour.
Other areas will increase from $1.00 to $1.25 an hour.
