San Francisco parking meter pricing goes up — and down

Meters

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency adjusted parking meter pricing this month, but not all will see increases.

The SFMTA uses demand pricing, raising the rate by 25 cents on blocks where average occupancy is above 80%, but lowering the rate 25 cents on blocks where average occupancy is below 60%.

The agency 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 idea is to open parking spaces on each block and reduce circling and double-parking. Rates are typically adjusted every quarter, according to SFMTA.
