If you’ve ever driven a car in San Francisco, you have probably experienced the ultimate frustration. Parking on a city street is about as easy as finding a happy meter cop. But the all-knowing computer is about to make San Francisco’s parking experience very different.
SFpark meter upgrades will continue through December in Civic Center, Hayes Valley, The Fillmore, Financial District, Fisherman's Wharf, Marina, Mission and SoMa.
KALW's October 29, 2010 episode of 99% Invisible featured Jay Primus, Manager of the SFpark project and Donald Shoup, author of the highly influential "The High Cost of Free Parking."
The SFMTA today began retrofitting 60 unused parking meter poles with new “ring” style bicycle racks. The retrofit ring installation is just the latest of a series of steps towards improving bicycle parking throughout the City.
The SFMTA today began adjusting rates at 1,129 motorcycle parking spaces in SFpark pilot areas, including many downtown spaces where prices will be reduced 30 percent from $0.70 to $0.50.
SFpark upgrades 270 metered parking spaces in the Civic Center. “Meter greeters” will introduce customers to new multi-space coin & card meters.

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.
On Tuesday, July 27, 2010, the SFMTA’s SFpark project will begin replacing old parking meters with new ”coin and card” smart meters. In the first installation phase, 190 new single-space meters will replace outdated meters in portions of Hayes Valley.
