Yesterday, the SFMTA’s SFpark project began a pilot test of using on-street parking spaces for car sharing. A total of eleven on-street parking spaces will be dedicated to car sharing.
The SFMTA has developed a book to share details about SFpark project implementation. This book is a resource to other cities, academics, and anyone who is interested in the project. It is available for download here.
SFpark is expanding its parking sensor program this summer, adding 1,200 spaces to the 7,000 spaces that currently have sensors. New sensors will be installed in the Financial District, SoMa, Civic Center, Fillmore, Mission, Marina and Fisherman’s Wharf.
The SFMTA SFpark project recently presented a plan to improve tour bus circulation and parking management in the City. On Tuesday, San Francisco Board of Supervisors President David Chiu introduced legislation to implement it.
Beginning late July, the SFMTA will adjust parking rates at SFpark meters in pilot areas based on parking demand data from in-ground parking sensors. In this first rate adjustment, 68% of the new rates will be lower or remain the same as current rates.
On April 4, rates at meters along the waterfront will change to align more closely with rates in surrounding areas.
To ensure the City’s internal policies reflect good overall parking management strategy, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA)’s SFpark project recently updated two key parking policies
SFpark meter upgrades will continue through December in Civic Center, Hayes Valley, The Fillmore, Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, Marina, Mission and SoMa.
New coin & card meters will replace around 415 existing meters in the Financial District between Clay, Jackson, Montgomery and the Embarcadero.
New multi-space meters will replace around 270 existing meters in the Civic Center area. In September, the SFMTA will upgrade nearly 300 additional single-space meters in the Hayes Valley/Civic Center area.
