San Francisco officials vote down Sunday parking meter charge


SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco residents and visitors won't need to feed parking meters on Sundays any more.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports ( the Municipal Transportation Agency voted unanimously Tuesday to scrap Sunday parking charges.

Mayor Ed Lee had urged officials to stop charging for parking in metered spaces on Sundays, as the public prepares to vote in November on a $500 million bond measure to finance transportation infrastructure and on a separate vehicle license fee hike.

The mayor said dropping the Sunday charge would make the public "more receptive" to embracing those long-term measures.

Transportation officials agreed. The newspaper says the decision will give up $11 million in annual revenue.

Also Tuesday, the MTA voted to delay some planned fare increases and prioritize expanded service to low-income seniors and youths.
