Get Set for Higher Parking Rates

The Port of Galveston prevailed in the lawsuit three local remote parking lots filed against the port over access fees the port is charging them to drop off and pick up customers at the port for their cruises.

“So what?” you're thinking. You live in Florida, so you don't care about parking in Texas. You should care about this because the ruling does set a precedent that could give a green light to ports all over to raise fees, and in turn that will cause the private lots to have to raise their parking rates. It could even affect taxis and limos coming to the port.
