Regularly scheduled tow-away zone GIS data

This dataset contains locations and schedules of regular tow-away zones which apply at the blockface-level in San Francisco. It does not include temporary street closures which could result in towing. The dataset contains:

  • Geospatial information for blockfaces with known tow schedules
  • Tow schedules with starting and ending hours and days applicable
  • Address ranges for the blockface segment
  • The centerline identifier of the street segment on which the blockface occurs
  • Notes, if known, to enhance the information about the regulation

This dataset was compiled in October and November of 2011. It reflects legislated changes through November 1, 2011. It is at least 95% accurate and may not include all blockface-level tow-away zones with regular, weekly schedules. Please email corrections or discrepancies to Always look for signage near your parking space and follow posted regulations to avoid parking citations and possible towage.

The zipped data folder contains the dataset as a shapefile and a CSV; a metadata and data dictionary PDF; and a map PDF as a dataset preview. The metadata and data dictionary document contain additional information about the data.
