Monthly and hourly rates are going up at Green P parking lots across Toronto starting Monday. The rate increases will vary based on location at 160 different lots. Monthly rates are going up between $5 and $30 while the half-hour rates are increasing, on average of 25 to 50 cents. Some lots have gotten rid of the daily maximum option, leaving drivers to pay for parking by the half-hour. The Toronto Parking Authority says that will benefit short-stay parkers and deter all-day parkers.
