Give Your Opinion On City Parking

Allison, a transportation planner with the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) emailed us to share with readers that an online survey  is currently underway focused on paid street parking in neighborhood business districts and downtown.

SDOT wants to gather the public's experiences on street and garage parking.  The survey take about 10-15 minutes to complete and ends on September 6th.

SDOT manages the on-street parking network – pay stations, meters, and related signs.

Allison said that "Right now, SDOT is  working on a project that outlines different strategies to make paid street parking in downtown andand neighborhood business districts more available, techncally called performance-based parking pricing."

She adds that "SDOT would like to get a better sense for business owner needs, understand the customer parking experience, and look for ways to make it better."

SDOT has a parking map that lists every paid, permit, carpool, time limited, no parking and unrestricted zone, as well as parking garages and lots. You can zoom in by address, intersection, major landmark, or neighborhood.
