  • I also initially assumed MonkeyParking was a joke, but as the Uptown Almanac piece notes, it is apparently real! As that piece describes, MonkeyParking inadvertently helps prove that street parking is still not accurately priced in the vast majority of the city. If spaces cost what they should based on market demand, no one would pay to hold a spot just so they could resell it to someone else.

    I do think it is a good sign that people are getting increasing creative to be able to drive and park in the city.

    Off topic, but the “BART Vision” attachment to the board meeting agenda is worth a look. Seven corridors for new BART lines are identified, including Geary, and seven infill stations are identified. Of course this is a long way from becoming reality, but it’s good to see planned expansion in the SF/Oakland core.
