Pittsburgh Parking Authority decided last week to suspend planned increase in all-day rates and monthly parking leases downtown for next August 1st. Executive Director David Onorato said "We want to make sure we're doing the right thing based on demand". Affecting demand are two new private garages planned in 2017, but also fewer people driving daily to downtown because of mass transit, ride share services and the exodus of some retailers and businesses from the Golden Triangle.
