Yesterday, the LA City Council voted for increases in fees for things relating to the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (like the boot fee went up $30 to $150). What the majority of the city deals with are parking meters, which are going to a minimum rate of $1.00 an hour citywide (but remember, it's prorated, so a quarter is 15-minutes).

Some high usage parts of the city will have higher fees, costing up to $4.00 an hour. Currently, the Civic Center and Central Business District areas are $1.50/$2.00 per hour, but will be raised to $3.00/$4.00.

Other popular destinations that will be $2.00 an hour are Chinatown, Robertson/Alden, Little Tokyo, Brentwood/San Vicente; Brentwood Village, Venice Beach, Washington/Pacific, Hollywood/Vine, and Studio City.

The standard citywide 2-hour time limit will not be changed. "These are for turnover," explained Bruce Gillman at LADOT. "Long term parking is not for a parking meter."
