SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — What is free now might cost you in the very near future.
The SFMTA is looking at the possibility of enforcing parking meters past 6 p.m. On the plus side, the MTA did drop the fees for towed cars in the city from about $500 to $380.
But this leaves the agency with an about $10 million budget shortfall.
So, the MTA is now researching what revenue would come from making people pay to park past 6 p.m.
How much later the meters would be enforced and in what neighborhoods this could happen in are all being looked at.
We should know by the summer, when the budget is due, what will happen to the parking meter money.
