I can tell you this; the Second City does not have second rate parking. For those of you who live in the city, or have spent time here you know very well Chicago’s parking is expensive – some would say too expensive. This factor is just another hurdle the urban jungle brings to life. Parking meter rates continue to rise, and with recent CTA hikes there just doesn’t seem to be any hope within the city of Chicago. But wait – there is! Think…long term. Long term parking that is. Purchasing long term parking can mean spending just a few bucks a day, and when downtown meter rates have jumped to $6.75 an hour, that sounds like a deal. Below are a few locations and parking options to get you started on finding a long term parking space in Chicago. Happy Parking!
