I rarely drive into the downtown core of my city. If I am there, it is usually because I am passing through on my way to somewhere else. On the occasions that I do need to go into our downtown area, I usually take public transit as it is cheaper and ofter less hassle. Parking can run upwards of $10 per hour and curbside parking is at a premium and often is only 15-30 minute parking. I hear of people paying as much for the luxury of a parking space downtown as it would be to rent a small apartment. How is the parking situation in your city? Can you still go downtown for a reasonable price? Is there enough parking available?
