Install parking meters
Metering the public parking areas along the National Mall was discussed with the public during the development of the Alternative Transportation Plan of 2008 and the National Mall Plan of 2010. This will help accomplish the following three primary goals:
• Manage the public parking turnover allowing more visitors access to park sites.
• Encourage the use of public transit and other transportation alternatives.
• Use parking revenue to improve and make more affordable visitor transportation related activities inside the park.
National Mall and Memorial Parks (NAMA) is initiating public outreach on a proposal to install multi-space parking meters at locations under NAMA jurisdiction where there is currently free public parking.
