Minor Parking Adjustments in the Northside (Euclid/Hearst) goBerkeley Area, Effective August 1, 2019

On August 1st, 2019, new parking rates and time limits will go into effect in the Northside (Euclid/Hearst) parking meter area. Data collected in spring 2019 showed that the new $2.00/hour rate in the Premium zone has made it easier to find parking, even when demand is highest. However, parking in the 2200 and 2600 blocks of Hearst Avenue is still hard to find.

As a result, the 2200 and 2600 blocks of Hearst Avenue will be converted to Premium zones at $2.00/hour for up to two (2) hours. A map of these changes is available here: goBerkeley Northside Rates and Time Limits.

Parking meter rates and time limits in Downtown Berkeley, Southside/Telegraph, and the Elmwood will not change on August 1. Staff will monitor parking occupancy in these areas later this year. 

goBerkeley uses an evidence-based approach to increase parking availability. After analyzing parking activity, staff adjust meter rates to ensure that 1-2 parking spaces are always open so drivers don't have to circle for a spot. goBerkeley also increases driver choice by lengthening time limits in some areas, and make it easier to understand parking rules and expectations through clearer, brighter signage.
