No more free Saturdays and the weekday parking rates are going up downtown too. Here's what you can expect starting today!

Saturday parking will be fee'd between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. in Zones 1 and 2 which is the heart of downtown Boise. During the week parking will be metered from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

According to KTVB, the only area that is not changing is Zone 3, but that's farther from downtown, so it makes sense but it also impacts us less! Most of the time we are going to want to park downtown!

Here's the deal.

  • The first 20 minutes are FREE
  • Zone 1 increases from $2 for the first hour, $3 for the second hour with a max of two hours.
  • Zone 2 $1.25 for the first hour that increases to $2 for the second hour with a max time of two hours.
  • Saturdays are $0.50 an hour for Zones 1 and 2 and again you have a max time of two hours.

Boise is booming and unfortunately with a higher demand these types of increases start to happen.
