If you already hated feeding the meter during the day when you were downtown or in midtown, it’s about to get even worse.
Starting tonight you will have to pay to park up until 10pm in most of downtown and until 8pm in some areas of midtown. That’s a big jump from the normal 6pm and free on the weekends. It’s all to get ready for the new Golden 1 center to open and to help manage traffic and parking once it does. There are even going to be mobile apps that can help you find and pay for parking. The Sac Bee has more on the story and you can read about it HERE.
