City of Madison to adjust reduced rates for parking garages


MADISON, Wis. — The City of Madison is set to phase out reduced parking rates beginning next week.

Starting Monday, the first hour of parking will no longer be free on Saturdays. A news release from the City’s Parking Division said the standard daily hourly rates will apply Monday through Friday.

As a result, the maximum rates for evenings and weekends will have a temporary lowered rate of $5 per day instead of the usual $8.

The COVID-19 recovery work plan went into effect in June and featured reductions to temporary parking rates in City-owned parking garages. The release said the changes to parking rules are meant as a return to normalcy during the pandemic.
