PITTSBURGH (AP) - Parking rates are on track to rise in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh City Council on Wednesday approved changes to parking in the city, which will make rates downtown go from $3 to $4 a hour.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also reports (https://bit.ly/1zy2Zlc ) that rates in other areas will go from $2 or $2.50 to $3, or from $1 to $1.50.

The new scheme also will expand enforcement hours from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in some parts of the city, add new meters in some areas and allow a pricing model that sets rates that fluctuate based on supply and demand.

The changes are expected to bring in $10 million a year more from parking, and the new rates and enforcement hours could take effect as early as Feb. 1.
