ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – You will have to fork out a little more money to park in downtown St. Louis starting Wednesday. New electronic parking meters the city has installed will now be charging $1.50 an hour for most downtown areas.
That’s an increase of 50 cents from one dollar.
Parking meters with less use will now charge $1.75 an hour.
And if you get a ticket, it will cost you $15 and rise to $30 dollars if you pay it late, but you get a longer grace period of three weeks to pay up.
Meters that haven't been replaced yet won't have a rate change until they are installed.
The new meters also have an app that you can use to make payments.
