Citywide Meter Rate Adjustment, February 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. The map below shows the effective rates for the next upcoming rate adjustment.
The first Citywide Meter rate adjustment went into effect in February 2018. The next Citywide rate adjustment is targeted to take effect in June 2018.
