Park place

    In anticipation of Wednesday’s snow emergency, the Philadelphia Parking Authority has announced that until Wednesday at 6 p.m, selected parking garages in Center City will be offering discounted rates.

    The following garages will charge a 24-hour flat parking rate of $5.00:

    Auto-Park at JFK (16th & JFK)

    Auto-Park at Independence Mall (5th & Market)

    Auto-Park at Jefferson (10th & Ludlow)

    Auto-Park at Gallery Mall (10th & Filbert)

    Auto-Park at 8th & Filbert

    Auto-Park at Old City at 2nd and Sansom

    All customers must have their parking ticket validated by a PPA attendant in the garage office — prior to exiting — in order to receive the $5 rate, the statement says. Vehicles must be parked in a PPA garage prior to 6 a.m. Wednesday in order to be eligible for the lower rate.
