Seattle Parking

Driving in Seattle is quickly becoming very similar to driving in cities like San Francisco, Silicon Valley or Los Angeles: more and more companies choose to settle or open their offices in Seattle so they can tap into the tech community that Seattle has to offer. With that, parking in Seattle is getting harder by day.

Paid Parking Occupancy dataset provided by the City of Seattle Department of Transportation provides a view into around 300 million parking transactions annually from around 12 thousands parking spots on roughly 1,500 block faces. The dataset does not include any transaction for Sundays as there is no paid parking. Most of the parking spots have a 2-hour limit.
