The sleek new cruise ship terminal on Pier 27 is a welcome addition to the waterfront. Ideally, it will be a boon to The City and the region as it brings in visitors from around the world who might not otherwise visit or spend their money here. But it also has the possibility to become a giant albatross around the neck of the Port of San Francisco if not properly managed. Read More
The news that The City’s nascent cruise ship terminal could well lose San Francisco boatloads of money is disturbing, but hardly unanticipated.

Drivers in San Francisco soon may not need a cache of coins in their cars to feed the meters as a part of a proposal to replace The City’s entire network of parking meters — some 30,000 devices — with newer technology by this fall.
San Francisco has about 23,000 older parking meters that accept only coins and payment cards issued by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which is in charge of parking in The City. There are an additional 6,000 or so meters that feature the agency’s new SFpark technology, which accept multiple payment forms and offer differing hourly rates. Another 1,000 meters are located on property the Port of San Francisco manages.
