Cost of parking increases in St. Louis

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The cost of parking in St. Louis is now a little higher.

As of Wednesday, the new high-tech meters in St. Louis charge $1.50 an hour to park through high-use areas of downtown and elsewhere. The previous cost was $1 per hour.

Penalties for violators have also increased. The previous minimum fine of $10 is now $15, and late fees are higher, too.

New electronic meters are replacing the old coin-operated meters. In places where the old meters still stand, the rates are unchanged, at least until they are replaced.
