Motorcycle Parking Meter Rates
The rates for parking meters vary throughout San Francisco. There are five different types of parking meter areas in San Francisco, which are called Area One, Area Two, Area Three, Area Four (Port of San Francisco), and Area Five. Meter rates correspond to the relative demand for parking in their specific area. As one would expect, the rates in the highest demand areas, such as downtown San Francisco, have the highest meter rates. The rates for motorcycle parking in Areas One through Four areas are one-fifth of the parking rates for automobiles.
Parking Meter Area Five is the SFpark area, which uses demand-responsive pricing as the primary strategy for managing parking availability. If a motorcycle meter is located within an SFpark area, the meter rate is adjusted every three months in response to current demand.
