Sunday metered parking to end in most areas starting today

Sunday parking will be free again in most areas of San Francisco starting today, according to the city's Municipal Transportation Agency.

San Francisco enacted citywide parking meter operation on Sundays in 2013, but Mayor Ed Lee has since called for the program to be scrapped to make it more affordable for visitors and residents to navigate the city, spend time at parks and shop, according to city officials.

Lee says the city is aggressively pursuing funding to boost its transportation network, including a $500 million transportation bond on the November ballot that, if approved, would be invested in improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders and drivers.

The SFMTA will still operate meters in the city on Sundays in some areas, including those under the jurisdiction of the Port of San Francisco and at Fisherman's Wharf as well as parking lots at Eighth and Ninth avenues at Clement Street, Geary Boulevard at 18th and 21st avenues, Eighth Avenue at Irving Street, the Pierce Street Garage near Lombard Street and Felton Street at San Bruno Avenue.

Parking meters around AT&T Park will also continue to operate on Sundays during special events, such as San Francisco Giants games.

For the first three Sundays this month starting today, parking control officers will place informational flyers on vehicles parked at expired meters where Sunday meters remain operational, according to the SFMTA.Bay Area NewsParkingparking metersSunday metersTransittransportation
