    “The last hot button issue discussed was whether or not the candidates supported variable rate meter parking, as well as parking meters operating on Sundays – both proposals that the MTA has made to try and make up for revenue shortfalls.”

    Shame on the Richmond Blog. Shame. We need to better manage our limited supply of parking spaces. Also, businesses operate on Sundays and need that parking turn over. Several paragraphs up, there is a discussion about vacant store fronts… Connect the dots.

  • If the 37 changes are part of the TEP – can they start throwing in some of the other ones as well?

    I don’t know how long it will take for people to connect paying for Sunday parking meters and being able to find a parking space at all.  If business owners understood how shoppers avoid shopping certain commercial strips after 6 pm or on Sundays, they would support longer metering hours.  Does the SFMTA have any studies on hand that it could make more widely available to a still uneducated public on this topic?  I know I avoid grocery shopping by car on Sundays in certain areas for precisely this reason — little parking available paid or unpaid.

    They are.  The #76  Marin Headlands is being discontinued south of Market. I saw the signs on one of the stops for that change.  Establishing Muni and taxi only lanes on Church Street between 16th Street and Duboce is another pilot: http://www.sfmta.com/cms/mtep/TEPPilots.htm

    “Transit villages” always make me think of little grass huts in BART station parking lots.

    BART does love their parking lots.
