New Parking Meter Rates and Time Limits Take Effect in the Northside (Euclid/Hearst) District, November 1, 2018

The Northside area is joining Downtown Berkeley, Southside/Telegraph, and the Elmwood as part of the City's innovative goBerkeley program, which improves the safety and ease of travel in Berkeley's vibrant commercial districts by making parking easier to find. On November 1st, 2018, new parking rates and time limits will go into effect in the Northside (Euclid/Hearst) parking meter area. 

  • "Premium" 2-Hour zone ($2.00/hour): Euclid Avenue, Hearst Avenue (2400-2500 blocks), Le Roy Avenue, and Ridge Road.
  •  "Value" 4-Hour zone ($1.50/hour): Hearst Avenue (2200 and 2600 blocks) and Scenic Avenue (1800 block).

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 November 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.
