ISC-Reducing Congestion through Smart Parking Management
"The transit study concluded that congestion is a primary factor reducing the reliability and speed of onroad transit, which in turn is exacerbated by drivers double-parking and circling to find parking. The findings dovetailed with the agency’s push to develop an area road pricing demonstration project, as well as the SFMTA’s initiative to more actively manage its parking supply. These combined efforts promised to generate revenue for the SFMTA to operate Muni (which faces a large structural budget deficit), relieve congestion, and clean the air. Pursuing a parking-based strategy to congestion management was facilitated by SFMTA’s authority over both parking and Muni."
