The street parking meter fee increase that was slated for January 1, 2013 has yet to take effect.

None of the city's 4100 pay boxes have been recalibrated to charge higher rates, Crain's Chicago Business reported.

The website for Chicago Parking Meters LLC said the transition continues and drivers are only responsible for paying the rates posted on meters.

Rates in the Loop were supposed to go up 75 cents on January 1st.
