New City Of Pensacola Parking Rates In Effect

May 11, 2024

The City of Pensacola has doubled parking rates.

The rate has increased from 50 cents an hour to $1 an hour.

City parking remains free on Sundays — excluding boat ramps

“The number one biggest concern from the 2023 Parking Survey was the limited amount of available parking spaces during weekend nights,” Mayor D.C.  Reeves said. “Well, this is also the time when city parking is free. With the increase of visitors and traffic to our downtown, plus the fact that rates haven’t been raised in almost 20 years, it’s time to balance supply and demand.”

    Just one more reason to never spend a dime downtown. I hate it for the businesses that the city’s greed is going to cost them money. Too many good places to eat and see that don’t involve the downtown area. Nope, not gonna do it!

    How bout using parking fees for road improvements instead of the other insane ideas that the Mayor and City come up with. They obviously don’t drive down E. Gregory, Garden St., Navy Blvd much. Commuters certainly can’t drive down these and other roads without spilling Their coffee…just sayin’

    There are two sides to Supply and Demand. Are they going to build additional parking garages downtown in the near future to increase the supply?
