City wants to hear your thoughts on paid parking

August 10th, 2011 · No Comments

At the beginning of the year, the Seattle Department of Transportation adjusted parking rates around the city. At the time, Charles Bookman, SDOT’s director of Traffic Management said, “These modifications are a reflection of the mayor’s and City Council’s commitment to data-driven policies to make it more likely for motorists to find an open spot on the street.”

Today, SDOT is working on a project called “performance-based parking pricing” which “outlines different strategies to make paid parking in downtown and neighborhood business districts more available,” the SDOT blog states. They are conducting an online survey about paid parking which takes about ten minutes to complete. You can find the survey here.

In case you’re wondering about parking prices, limits and restrictions, SDOT has a parking map that lists every paid, permit, carpool, time limited, no parking and unrestricted zone, as well as parking garages and lots. You can zoom in by address, intersection, major landmark, or neighborhood.
