San Francisco has approximately 442,000 publicly-available parking spaces citywide, which includes both on-street and off-street (garages and lots) spaces. This count of publicly-available spaces does not include private parking in houses, apartment buildings, and businesses.

Of all publicly-available spaces, 275,000 are legal on-street spaces, including metered, unmetered, and colored curb spaces.

The dataset and map is available via the link below, a ZIP archive that contains a shapefile, tabular data, data guide, fact sheet, and map of publicly available on-street parking in San Francisco.

The off-street parking census data continues to be available — download off-street GIS data here.
