In 2010, while preparing its two-year operating budget proposal for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010-11 and FY 2011-12, the SFMTA declared a fiscal emergency to bridge projected budget shortfalls of $56 and $45 million respectively. Proposed funding solutions to bridge these shortfalls included transit fare increases and service modifications as well as parking fee and fine increases.
Community input was sought to discuss the various funding options during a number of public hearings held in February, March and April of 2010. As required by the City Charter, advertisements publicizing each of these hearings were placed well in advance in Bay Area newspapers. Multi-lingual ads were also placed in prominent Chinese and Spanish newspapers in San Francisco.
The SFMTA Board of Directors approved the SFMTA’s two-year budget for FY 2010-11 and FY 2011-12 in spring 2010 with no subsequent action by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
The cost-based recovery increases for parking fees and fines includes Residential Parking Permits, color curb services and disabled parking citation penalties.
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) will increase the fees for parking permits, street closure permits, color curb zones, and boot and storage fees.
