To Reduce Downtown Congestion End Free Parking

A task force recommends ending free and subsidized parking in Washington D.C.

"The District government should eliminate free and subsidized parking for its employees, a task force that explored ways to reduce congestion downtown recommended yesterday.

D.C. Mayor Anthony A. Williams and Department of Transportation Director Dan Tangherlini said the recommendation was worth exploring. Williams and Tangherlini said free parking encourages city employees to drive to work instead of using public transportation."
