This fall, the cost of parking in downtown Columbia will increase -- but access to public transit will as well.

Columbia City Council members last night amended the city code to raise parking rates for both unmetered off street facilities and metered parking in the MU campus area. The amendment will go into effect October 1. 

Meter prices on campus will increase from 75 cents per hour to $1 per hour. Parking pass prices will go up $10 a month but parking permit consumers will have an unlimited bus pass included in their monthly rate.

Columbia residents living around the North Village area have been facing parking issues for some time now, but tonight the City Council will hear out some proposed fixes.

Brookside resident Eleanor Clegg has to pay $80 every three months to park her car in a garage four blocks away from her apartment. She thinks there must be another option.

“I wish there was more free parking in general, like a parking lot that you can just parking for free,” she says. "But I think more meters will help."
