Parking is getting more expensive in Arlington. Starting today, parking rates are going up by 25 cents.
The hourly long-term meter rate is increasing from $0.75 to $1.00 while the hourly short-term meter rate is increasing from $1.00 to $1.25.
When first proposed to the County Board, county staff said the increase would “make Arlington rates consistent with other rates in the region, and will result in more efficient utilization of valuable curb space.”
“Especially in areas where short term parking is needed, the rates can help to encourage parking turnover,” staff noted.
Will the rate increase affect your parking habits?
