Higher rates for metered parking are coming to New York this fall, with new costs taking effect in Brooklyn starting Sept. 4. 

Rollouts will start in Brooklyn, spreading into Manhattan in October. Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island will also face higher prices later this year. 

These price hikes are being carried out in hopes that they will ease congestion in the city’s busiest areas, according to Crain’s

Downtown Brooklyn will see the highest price hike in the borough, jumping from $1.00 to $2.00 per hour. Other affected areas in Brooklyn, such as Greenpoint and Williamsburg, will see an increase from $1.00 to $1.50.

Midtown and Lower Manhattan will be hit the hardest, as the cost of parking rises from $3.50 to $4.50 hourly in October. 

This will be the first increase in metered parking costs since 2013, according to the Department Of Transportation.
