New parking meter technology coming to Civic Center

After making its debut in Hayes Valley last month, The City’s new parking meter technology will move over to the Civic Center on Monday.

The meters, part of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s SFpark program, will have rates that are adjusted based on demand for the spots. They also accept multiple forms of payment and have technology that detects occupancy rates. The SFMTA said the new meter technology will decrease traffic congestion, while also increasing parking revenue.

On Monday, 20 new multispace meters will be unveiled near the Civic Center. On Wednesday, 20 more multispace meters are scheduled to go live.

In total, the new SFpark technology will replace 270 existing meters on arteries such as Van Ness Avenue, Polk Street, Larkin Street and Grove Street. In lieu of the old meters, the SFMTA plans on installing new bike racks.
