2006 Parking Rate Survey


2006 Parking Rate Survey

Here’s the Deal.  Colliers International has released its annual survey of parking rates.  I think its important so I copied its summary here. The most interesting thing is that there hasn’t been a huge increase in parking rates over the past year.  Remember what "median" means — its NOT the average, but the middle number. If you list all the parking rates surveyed in Manhattan, for instance, the rate listed below is the middle rate, not the average rate.There are just as many on the list above $574.12 than there are below.

Rates for unreserved parking spaces crept higher over the
past 12-months, rising on average 4.4 per cent across the U.S.The median rate for unreserved
parking now averages U.S.$153.19 per month. Unreserved rates range from
a high of $887.80 in Midtown Manhattan to a low of
$35.00 in Phoenix, Arizona

Reserved parking rates increased marginally during the same
12-month period, rising 3.8 per cent. The median rate for reserved parking now
averages $180.68.Daily parking rates, however, posted a sizeable gain of 10.1
per cent in the U.S.

The median rate for daily parking now averages $15.28.

The five most expensive parking districts in the U.S. are (based
on median monthly unreserved rates):

• Midtown Manhattan– $574.12 per month

• Downtown Manhattan- $500.00 per month

•Boston– $420.00 per month

•San Francisco– $335.00 per month

•Chicago– $332.00 per month

The five least expensive parking districts in the U.S.are (based

•Walnut CreekCA– $35.00 per month

•Bakersfield CA– $40.00 per month

•Reno NV– $45.00 per month

•Fresno CA– $55.00 per month


Parking rates in cities around the world make even the most
expensive Canadian and

U.S. cities seem reasonable.
