The opening hours of the council-run Coppergate Centre Car Park are being cut.
It will close at 7pm instead of 8pm from Saturday (14 May).
City of York Council says that this will match the car park to the footstreet hours.
Parking officers also say the car park gets little use after 7pm.
The Coppergate Shopping Centre closes at 5.30pm Monday to Thursday, 6pm Friday to Saturday and 5pm on Sundays. Shopmobilty, based at the car park, closes at 4pm.
James Gilchrist, the council’s director of transport, environment and planning, said: “We’ve been working closely with partners to review the opening times. In doing so, we are aligning Coppergate Centre Car Park with the current footstreet times of 7pm.
“We also hope that the earlier closing time will help to tackle the issue of anti-social behaviour we’ve recently experienced.”
Additional CCTV has also been installed in the ground floor lobby area of the car park.
