I think the idea is that there will be cheaper spaces somewhere else and you can park somewhere else, pay less and take a walk.

Of course the problem is that you have to know where those places are. Hopefully they can put little signs on the meters that point people to cheaper parking.

according to the website, there will be smart phone applications that tell you where parking is available and/or cheaper

Excellent, I look forward to getting run over by some jerk cruising around the block while staring at his iPhone.

A smartphone contract costs what, $2k? Those aren't the people who would be forced out of the city by higher parking costs.
