Some Cincy parking meter rates and hours change today


Starting Friday, parking meter rates increase in Over-the-Rhine and you'll have to pay to park longer in the evening there and in Downtown.  

Hours of operation will be from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.  

In addition, the meter rate in OTR will increase to a $1 per hour.  The Downtown price remains $2 per hour.  

Additional smart meters have been installed in OTR so people parking will be able to use credit cards like they have for a couple years in some parts of Downtown.  

Additional smart meters will be installed later next month in some of the city's neighborhood business districts.  But hours and rates will not be changing in those areas.  

The extra revenue from the Downtown and OTR meters will be used to help fund the operating costs of the city's streetcar system.
