The new public parking rate pricing structure in Bethesda will charge more for the spaces in highest demand and will eliminate differences between long- and short- term parking.
Effective July 1, charges will be based on the type of parking used. The new rates will be: $2 per hour for on-street parking meters; $1.25 per hour for surface parking lots; and $.80 per hour for garage parking. Current rates in Bethesda are $1.25 per hour for short-term parking (four hours or less) and $.80 per hour for long-term parking (greater than four hours). Time restrictions still apply, and parking spaces may be restricted to short- or long-term parking.
In Montgomery Hills, the new rates will be $.50 per hour for both short- and long-term parking.
