So, today the SFMTA votes on it's planned budget for the "fiscal emergency". As some of you may recall there was a proposal to raise MC parking meter rates to a whopping $1 per hour. Well, it looks like they're not exactly doing a line-item vote on the various proposals, and today (right now, as a matter of fact) they're voting on whether or not to enact the proposed budget.
I think it's fair to say that it's going to pass, as a matter of course.
Of course, the language re: moto parking is in there, and somewhat changed, but come July 1st, here's what you can expect:
So, for me, my parking costs go from $40.00 a month to $130.00. Way to encourage moto commuting, SFMTA! Especially combined with the ~15% paycut I've taken in the last 6 months.
Enjoy, folks. We now have (near as I can tell) the most expensive motorcycle parking in the western hemisphere. (maybe the world, couldn't find any info on Asian cities)
