The cost of parking your car or truck in some parts of downtown D.C. will change as of today.

Parking meters in the Penn Quarter/Chinatown section of downtown D.C. will be higher starting today; and much higher.  The rate with change from $1.50 an hour to $3.25 an hour!!!

Now rates will vary from meter to meter and will change depending on the time of day.


The District Department of Transportation said in a statement that the rates are changed quarterly based on “observed demand for parking on a block-by-block basis.”

The current rates were set last October.
