Drivers in the Bronx and Staten Island officially must dig deeper into their pockets to pay for parking.

Price increases for the two boroughs were rolled out Monday, rising 25 cents to the new rate of $1.25 an hour in most neighborhoods.

But in some areas, including Kingsbridge, East Tremont, and St. George, the cost is rising from a dollar to $1.50.




Staten Island and the Bronx are the last two boroughs to see these meter increases.

The rates vary based on neighborhood through the city, ranging from $1 an hour to as much as $6 in Manhattan south of Chambers Street.

The higher prices may not sit well with most drivers, but some have argued that more spots will open up with the higher parking prices.
