Parking rates increase on Bronx streets
Residents who want to park on Bronx streets may have to cough up more money today.
The Department of Transportation says it has replaced standard parking meters with muni-meters and hiked up rates. The new rates will be a $1 per hour for short-term parking and $8 per day at long-term metered spaces.
The city says it is in the process of replacing all single-space meters with muni-meters. These meters are more visible, have a pay-and-display system and free up space on sidewalk.
The increased rates go into effect today. Residents are asked to make sure check their parking spots for the new meters.
