How do you feel about parking in Hyattsville?
Some of you have mentioned that you don't think there's enough parking at the Streetsense shops (think, Busboys and Poets) on Baltimore Avenue and Jefferson Street.
With construction ongoing there, it's hard to tell if more parking is coming behind the shops—inquiries to Streetsense have not been returned—but in the evenings, the current parking spaces are generally occupied.
- 3rd hour is $4
- 4th hour is $6
- 5th through 12th hour is $8
- 12th hour through 24th hour $14
If you’re going to the Royale 14 movie theater you can get your parking ticket validated at a rate of 4 hours for $1.
There is also temporary parking along America Boulevard.
The Hyattsville City Council has discussed installing parking meters in some of the commercial areas of the city, but it hasn’t made any official decisions yet. There are a couple city lots with free parking now and there is a metered lot at Franklin’s.
