New parking rates to start in Redwood City
July 31, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

An increase in parking costs in Redwood City’s core downtown area are scheduled to begin Monday with a goal of encouraging longer-term parkers to choose less expensive spaces a little further out.

Rates jump to $1 per hour on Monday, Aug. 4 in the core bordered the Caltrain tracks by Main, Marshall streets. The area around the 2600 block of Broadway toward El Camino Real is also affected.

The rates apply from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Street parking rates outside the downtown core remain at 25 cents per hour.

Mayor Jeff Gee said the downtown’s popularity is what drives the need to promote parking turnover.

“That ongoing success is bringing parking challenges, and we appreciate everyone’s patience. The new rates and other strategies we’re implementing will be helpful as downtown continues its resurgence,” Gee said in a prepared statement.

Other parking options in and around downtown Redwood City include:

• The County Garage on Middlefield Road near Veterans Boulevard and the Caltrain parking lot on Perry Street are free to the public after 6 p.m. on weekdays and throughout the weekend;

• The first 1.5 hours are always free in both the Jefferson and Marshall streets parking garage;

• The Jefferson Street Garage is 25 cents per hour until 6 p.m. on weekdays until 6 p.m. and $2.50 an hour after with four free hours from Century Theatre validation.

Looking to the future, the city is investigating new parking meter technology, electronic signs in garages indicating the number of available spaces at any given time and “grab and go” 20-minute spaces.
