RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Rates to park in most of Raleigh’s nine parking decks are set to change on Oct. 1, according to press release from the city.

The rates will decrease for short-term use and increase for full-day parking.

Starting on Tuesday, the rates to park will be:

  • $1.50/hour, first four hours;
  • $2/hour after four hours to daily maximum;
  • Daily maximum: $14;
  • Special event parking: $10; and,
  • Lost ticket charge: $25.

According to a press release, lowering the short-term hourly rate is intended to encourage motorists to park in the decks, in hopes of freeing up on-street parking for downtown visitors.

The Raleigh City Council approved the changes as part of the budget adoption process in June.

Two parking decks aren’t included in the change: the Performing Arts deck and the Convention Center underground deck, will both remain $3 per hour.

The city of Raleigh’s website has a summary of fee changes and parking deck enhancements.
