Downtown Vancouver parking rates increase, city will replace old coin-only parking meters
VANCOUVER, Wash. —
The City of Vancouver has announced a slew of price changes for parking meters and garages.
Starting March, the hourly parking rate at existing pay stations in downtown Vancouver will increase to $1.25 per hour from 50 cents. Older, coin-only parking meters will remain at 50 cents an hour until they're replaced later this year.
On-street parking will stay free after 6 p.m. on weekdays, all day on weekends on all city-recognized holidays.
Parking rates will also increase at Vancouver Center Park 'n Go garage on West Sixth Street to $1.25/hour:
Daytime until 6 p.m.: $9
6 p.m. to close: $3.50
Full day: $12.50
$3.50 for the full day
The city will also replace its old coin-only parking meters with new pay stations that accept coins and cards. The new rate will be $1.25 per hour.
Officials are hoping the changes bring about lower maintenance and operational costs, improve customer experience and make parking self-sufficient.
