Parking Meter Changes
Meter Rate Changes in Manhattan
DOT recently increased parking meter rates in Manhattan south of 110th Street. Starting on January 25, 2013, the new short term parking meter rates are:
- $1.50 an hour between 96th Street and 110th Street.
- $3.50 hour below 96th Street.
Muni-Meter Installations Throughout the City
DOT has replaced all remaining single-space meters throughout the city with muni-meters. Muni-meters have several advantages over single-space parking meters, include the convenience of a pay-and-display system, the reduction of unnecessary sidewalk encumbrances, and additional capacity for parked cars in the same curb space.
DOT completed replacing all single space parking meters in Manhattan during the summer of 2011. Installation in the other boroughs completed work in January, 2013. For more information on muni-meter installations, contact your local Borough Commissioner's office.
