Parking Fee Pilot Project Extended for D.C. Metro
The Board of Directors for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) approved an extension for an ongoing parking fee pilot program. The Board of Directors will have to vote again to make the pilot permanent, with a vote set for fall.
The pilot project sets Saturday parking fees, extra parking fees for people who do not pay with a SmarTrip card just used to ride the system, and parking fee hours, according to an article by Max Smith.
"The only immediate change to the new parking rules that have applied since February is to allow VRE and MARC train riders parking at Metro lots like Franconia-Springfield, Greenbelt and New Carrollton to pay the regular parking fee rather than the significantly higher “nonrider” parking fee," reports Smith.
Although the article predates before the Board of Directors vote, Smith since took to Twitter to confirm that the parking fees had been extended.
