Dallas is the eighth most populous city in the United States and the third most populous city in the state of Texas. Dallas was founded in 1841. It is crossed by Interstate highways 20, 30, 35, and 45.
The city's economy is primarily based on banking, commerce, telecommunications, computer technology, energy, healthcare and medical research, transportation and logistics.
Dallas is home to the third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the nation. The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex is the largest metropolitan area in the South and fourth-largest metropolitan area in the United States.
Dallas has a humid subtropical climate, though it is located in a region that also tends to receive warm, dry winds from the north and west in the summer, bringing temperatures well over 100 °F at times.
Like many other major cities in the United States, the primary mode of local transportation in Dallas is the automobile, though efforts have been made to increase the availability of alternative modes of transportation, including the construction of light rail lines, biking and walking paths, wide sidewalks, a trolley system, and buses.
Parking in Dallas
There are 9417 total parking spaces in the District which includes:
The City of Dallas has installed parking meters throughout downtown that take the worry out of parking. These meters will accept a Cash Key in addition to coins.
When you insert the Cash Key, the meter displays the amount remaining on the key, (Note: available funds are rounded down to the nearest whole dollar). The meter then deducts $.25 from the preprogrammed amount on the Cash Key and registers the time on the meter. To register additional time on the meter, reinsert the Cash Key. Each Cash Key is $15 plus tax. You pay the $15 for the key and an additional $25, $50, $100 or $200 worth of time.
Also, the purchase of a Cash Key does not guarantee a space since the electronic meters also accept coins. Parking meter spaces are still on a first come, first served basis.
