Parking meters are an urban staple and, with increases across the country effective January 1st, some downtowns are charging a premium for them. Similarly, starting today, it’s going to cost a bit more to visit the White Flint district by car. As part of the North Bethesda Transportation Management District, White Flint’s on-street meters are increasing to $1.00/hour from the previous rate of $.75. Parking convenience stickers, used at the lot on Montrose Road and Rockville Pike, have increased to $123 per month.
So – start thinking outside of the car when traveling around White Flint. Once the sector plan comes to full fruition, you’ll have a choice of public transportation options to reach the area and, then, be able to walk to the various amenities! Until then, pop a few extra quarters in your pocket. Even better, don’t forget that many White Flint-area meters take payment via ParkNOW‘s Pay-By-Cell option!
