2020 Rate Changes

October 2020 Paid Parking Rates

In mid-July SDOT restarted paid parking at $0.50/hour in all locations, with previous hours of operation and maximum stay.

Starting October 5, rates will increase to $1.00/hour at some times of day in a few areas:

   New Sept Rates
Paid Parking Area AM Afternoon PM
Belltown South $0.50 $1.00 $0.50
Chinatown/ID Core $0.50 $1.00 $0.50
Chinatown/ID Edge $0.50 $1.00 $0.50
Denny Triangle North $0.50 $1.00 $0.50
Denny Triangle South $0.50 $1.00 $0.50
First Hill $1.00 $1.00 $0.50

Rates in all other areas will remain at $0.50/hour.

SDOT continues to set paid parking rates based on data and the SMC goal to achieve 1 to 2 open spaces per blockface. This fall, in an effort to be flexible and responsive to changes in business districts, SDOT will update paid parking rates twice after the initial base rate-setting in July. This process will use updated data collected and analysis of the transactions to determine the levels of parking activity around the city, and make rate adjustments accordingly.
