NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The cost of street parking in New York City will be going up soon.

Meter rates currently range from $1 an hour to $3.50.

Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenebrg said New York's rates are among the lowest when compared to other comparable cities.

"We've been working on different means of tackling congestion in this city. The issue of parking and how we can adjust rates and improve turnover has been part of that discussion," she said.

How much the rates will increase, has not been determined.
