Parking Meter Citation Rate Increase

The City of San Rafael Parking Services is proposing that several citation rates be raised as part of the master fee schedule update. Citations for expired meters, red zones, abandoned vehicles and several others are recommended for increase.  The current expired meter is $35, and a possible increase discussed would be $40.

Other cities in Marin were surveyed and recommendations were based on the average of the other cities. Please note that rates at meters and in the lots and garages are not increasing.  Free parking programs like 3 hours free in city lots and garages over the December holidays and free weekend parking in the garages will continue.

Monthly parking for employees in the 2 garages remains at $75.00 per month. Employee parking is also available at designated lots for $63.00 per month. Frequent parker cards for employees working part-time are available and allow the user to pay½ the daily rate in the garages.  Get monthly parking information HERE.
