Fines and Permit Fees

Thursday, December 10, 2020
In order to ensure that scooters are not cluttering the sidewalk and causing an impediment to older adults, people with disabilities and other pedestrians, SFMTA, in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office on Disability, has established clear parking requirements. SFMTA Investigators issue a $100 citation for each improperly parked scooter. Like all entities that are issued citations, Scooter Share permittees are afforded due process and can appeal the citations before a neutral hearing officer.
