CA: SFMTA to Change Sunday Parking Meter Operations

Starting July 6, parking meters will no longer operate on Sundays throughout most of San Francisco.

This change is the result of the approval of the SFMTA’s fiscal year 2015-2016 (July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2016) budget, which repealed operating meters on Sundays throughout the city. Citywide Sunday meter operation began January 2013.

“Starting July 6, we are making San Francisco a little more affordable for our families and residents who want to get around our City and spend time at our parks, do a little shopping or visit one of our world class neighborhoods,” said Mayor Ed Lee. “While we give people a break at the meters on Sundays, we are aggressively pursuing critical funding for our entire transportation network, including a $500 million transportation bond this November that will invest in our City’s transportation system for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders and drivers alike, all without raising property taxes.”

As a result of the change, most parking meters in San Francisco will only operate Monday through Saturday, reverting to their pre-January 2013 operating schedule.

Prior to 2013, some meters in the city operated on Sundays and will continue to do so. These include meters within the Port of San Francisco’s jurisdiction, including the Fisherman’s Wharf area.

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

For the first three Sundays in July, SFMTA Parking Control Officers will place informational flyers on vehicles parked at expired meters in areas where Sunday meters will remain operational to remind the public of these changes.

When in doubt, customers are reminded to check the parking meter for days and hours of operation.
