Washington theatregoers are facing new costs for on-street parking, thanks to a revenue-raising measure by the DC City Counsel which became effective January 1.
Metered parking is now two dollars an hour in most parts of the City. What’s more, you’ll need to feed the meters until 10.30 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays. Under the old meter law, most on-street parking was free after six or six thirty pm, and on Saturdays.
Washington theatergoers will, from this point forward, face four choices when they see a show: (a) take the Metro, (b) park in a garage or lot (make sure it stays open until the show’s over!), (c) bring lots of quarters for the meters, or find the nearest meter taking your charge card or (d) go on Sunday.
