This Week: SFMTA Board Votes on Sunday Parking Meters

Tomorrow, the SFMTA Board of Directors could vote tomorrow on a budget that caves to pressure from Mayor Ed Lee and undoes Sunday parking metering. On Thursday, a SPUR panel explores the idea of a contra-flow transit lane on the Bay Bridge.

Here are this week’s calendar highlights:

  • Tuesday: The SFMTA Board of Directors could vote on a two-year budget that includes the removal of Sunday parking meters. Although SFMTA Director Ed Reiskin has suggested compromised options, the proposed budget includes the full reversal of Sunday meters. This is your chance to call on the board to buck the mayor and retain smart parking policy. 2 p.m.
  • Thursday: SPUR’s lunchtime forum explores the possibility of a contraflow bus lane on the Bay Bridge, which could support increased bus demand once the Transbay Transit Center is completed in 2017. 12:30 p.m.
  • Also Thursday: Come see updated and detailed plans for the SF Public Utilities Commission’s Sunset Boulevard Greenway Project, aimed at creating rain gardens that capture stormwater within the street. 5 p.m.
