New York City parking meters will soon become the latest citywide amenity to become more expensive, as the Department of Transportation announced meter cost increases, some of which will start in mid-October.

Manhattan will be the first borough to see the changes, starting October 16, following by Queens on October 27, Brooklyn on November 9, the Bronx on November 22, and finally Staten Island on November 28.

But the price isn’t the only change set to take effect; in busy areas, such as Downtown Brooklyn, Jamaica, and 125th Street in Manhattan, the second hour spent at a meter will cost $5, double the new price of the first hour.

In Lower Manhattan and Midtown, one-hour parking will cost $5.50, up from $4.50.

A spokesperson for the DOT said the hikes are intended to free up spaces that were previously used for hours.
