Starting Wednesday night, it will cost you a bit more money to snag a parking spot in downtown Austin.
Austin's Transportation Department said parking spaces in the downtown area eclipsed 85 percent occupancy on Wednesday nights, with no fees past 6 p.m.
That all changed on August 2.
In the downtown area, which stretches from Interstate 35 to Lamar Boulevard and Lady Bird Lake to 10th Street, parking spaces will now cost $1.20 per hour through midnight.
If the parking trend on Wednesdays stays consistent, officials said the city could take in an extra $400,000 per year.
The money would help fund street cleaning, wayfinding signs and parking enforcement - all in hopes of improving traffic.
As always, if you have a little too much fun downtown and choose to keep your car parked, the city will dismiss the ticket the parking ticket as long as you provide proof of a safe, sober ride home.
