Drivers Not Living In Miami Could Be Paying More For City Parking

Sep 14, 2018

The city of Miami could be hiking the price to park for nonresidents.


City commissioners are considering increasing the hourly rate to $3.25 an hour in some neighborhoods. Rates would increase for public parking lots, garages and curbside spots.

According to The Miami Herald, Miami residents who register with the city would be spared the extra cost. (They can currently apply for a 20 percent discount through the PayByPhone app.)
