City Council Introduces Dynamic Pricing For Parking

Pittsburgh City Council introduced dynamic pricing for parking meters in the City to start next year.  This measure will set rates according to the economics of supply and demand for areas that have high rates of traffic.  Please note that these rates are adjustable and can fluctuate. 

In order to address concerns about the negative impact on Downtown businesses, Councilman Lavelle has provided amendments to help alleviate this change.  The original version of the ordinance saw nighttime enforcement of parking meters in Downtown extend to 10 pm; however, the District 6 Councilman Dan Lavelle raised questions to eliminate this change and keep enforcement until 6 pm . This measure succeeded in passing, subsequently keeping enforcement until 6 pm.  To see a copy of the final language for the ordinance, please click here
