The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to implement adjusted parking meter rates as part of the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Support Clarification Temporary Amendment Act of 2015. The new rate structure was ordered by the Council of the District of Columbia last year, and establishes parking meter rates at $2.30 an hour for commercial and passenger vehicles citywide.
Approximately 14,850 parking meters across the District will be reprogrammed over the next several weeks. DDOT and the city’s pay-by-phone vendor will update software to accommodate the new rate structure, which takes effect June 1, 2016.
Following are the new rates:
Premium Demand Zones: $2.00 to $2.30 an hour
Normal Demand Zones: $.75 to $2.30 an hour
Commercial Loading Zones: $2.00 to $2.30 an hour
Commercial vehicle operators have the option of purchasing annual passes for $323, day passes at $25, or pay-by-cell for loading zone use. Information on the loading zone program can be found at www.godcgo.com/freight.
Motorcycle Parking: $0.25 an hour citywide
More information on parking meters can be found on DDOT’s website.
