• Parking prices go up in Pittsburgh


    PITTSBURGH - If you need to park in Pittsburgh, bring a thicker wallet.

    Prices went up on Friday.

    The parking authority hasn’t raised its rates for 10 years.

    “I’d rather park over there, take the T for free and walk a couple blocks than scramble around trying to find a spot that costs more,” said Jon Albert.

    Parking in downtown Pittsburgh, Oakland, Shadyside and the North Side is going to cost, at the most, another $4.25 a day.

    On average, the daily rates will go up $1.

    Pittsburghers pay between $8 and $18 a day for parking.

    Drivers are paying $37 a day in Philadelphia.

    In New York City, parking could cost you $80.
