I wonder if there's a dual motive in that incentive. Free parking would also increase foot traffic and bolster sidewalk businesses, like cafes and retail.

I live in the Boston area where parking spaces are at a premium,so parking for long periods of time actually decreases foot traffic. Thus we have 2 hour parking limits, and $50 fines. Ironic, as cities are the place where hybrids are most beneficial.
