Citywide Meter Rate Adjustment #3 Fall 2018
The SFMTA uses demand-responsive pricing to open up parking spaces on each block and reduce circling and double-parking. Using meter payment data to estimate parking occupancy, the SFMTA raises the rate by $0.25 on blocks where average occupancy is above 80%, lowers the rate $0.25 on blocks where average occupancy is below 60%, and does not change the rate on blocks that hit the target occupancy between 60% and 80%. Rates may vary by block, by time of day, and weekday or weekend.
As of November 7, 2018, the Fall 2018 rate change is operational at all parking meters citywide. To learn more about the demand-responsive program and for a map with current parking meter rates on each block please visit the demand-responsive program page.
