Parking meter surge pricing around Wrigley Field for games and concerts to end this year | Chicago Tribune

A two-year experiment on raising parking meter prices around Wrigley Field during Cubs games and concerts will end this year, Wrigleyville’s alderman said Monday.

Ald. Tom Tunney, 44th, said local businesses were tired of being the only ones in the city where “surge pricing” was in place. He said he will stop the program at the end of this year.

“If we’re going to be the only ones, that isn’t right,” said Tunney, who is running for re-election and facing a potentially tough race. “It’s hard to defend, with business owners and residents complaining that it’s so expensive to park.”

Under the program, which started in 2017, metered parking in an area bounded by Irving Park Road, Belmont Avenue, Southport Avenue and Broadway increased from $2 to $4 an hour for seven hours starting two hours before Cubs games and concerts at the ballpark.
