More Expensive To Park In Lincoln

CREATED Mar. 12, 2013

Lincoln, NE - If you're headed to Lincoln any time soon, take some extra change with you.  It'll cost more to park in metered spaces. 

The hourly rate has doubled to $1 an hour. 

The city just finished installing new meters that take debit and credit cards, just like the meters here in Omaha. 

The increase will bring in about $1 million.   $750,000 of that will go to the city's general fund. The rest will help pay for new parking garages.
