  • I am confused how the pricing or how responsive pricing will work with SFpark.

    These two statements seem to contradict each other:

    “Under SFpark, the base price could range from 50 cents to $6. Rates could reach as high as $18 an hour for special events.”

    “To minimize confusion, the price will not fluctuate more than 50 cents an hour and won’t be changed more than once a month.”

    1) Are the special events a month long?
    2) How will SFpark inform the public of changes in the pricing schedules?

    Re: Bridge Walkway Overcrowding

    Some of the bike rental shops have started giving maps of Market Street and the Wiggle as an “urban biking experience” for tourists.

    My main concern is this: Does the City think it is safe to have tourists riding om Fell Street knowing how swervey and inexperienced they can be? If a tourist gets seriosuly hurt riding a bicycle in “green San Francisco,” how much would that hurt our main industry?

    Build a cycletrack now, for the sake of our economy!
