Santa Fe has a Parking Problem


Santa Fe has a Parking Problem

I’m in Santa Fe.  The Southwest Parking Association was nice enough to invite me to speak before their group in Albuquerque.  I decided that since I had never seen Santa Fe, I should stay up here (its about 45 minutes out of town).

I walked to the famous Plaza and noted that the on street parking was filled and the parking structure was empty.  Here’s the rates — On street $1 and hour, 2 hour max — Off street $1.80 and hour.. Off street is 80 percent more than on street.  A classic Shoupista problem.

Just think, changing a few signs could fix the parking issues in Santa Fe. 

I’ll report back after the SWPA meeting today and tomorrow
