Downtown Raleigh parking rates increase
Posted September 30, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Parking in parts of downtown Raleigh became more expensive Monday.
On-street parking rates in the "purple zone," which is bounded by Morgan Street to the north, Wilmington Street to the east, Lenoir Street to the south, and Salisbury Street to the west, increases from $1 to $1.25 an hour. The 15-minute rate increases from 25 to 50 cents, and the 30-minute rate from 50 to 75 cents.
The rate increase was included in Raleigh's 2013-14 budget.
Rates in other areas downtown remain unchanged. Parking pay stations have colored decals to make it easier to identify the parking zone, officials said.
