City plans to raise parking rates at two garages

The city's Board of Estimates on Wednesday is set to approve parking rate increases at two downtown garages.

Rates for those parking between four and 12 hours at the Arena Garage, near the Baltimore Arena, will increase from $14 to $15. "Early bird" parking rates at the Market Garage, near Lexington Market, will increase from $6 to $7 while the fee charged to those who park between four and 24 hours will increase from $8 to $9.

The Parking Authority of Baltimore recommended the increases because the fees at those garages are "generally lower than fees charged at other parking facilities within the area," according to documents submitted to the spending panel.
