*** Press Release ***

On Thursday, April 1 the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which operates the Municipal Railway (Muni) and oversees all surface transportation in San Francisco, will increase several fees and fines.

All parking citation fines will increase by $2 to offset pass-through fees to offset mandatory debt service costs related to State courthouse construction.

Annual Residential Parking Permits will increase from $76 to $96, as will a variety of other parking related permits issued by the SFMTA. These permit fees are based on administrative and enforcement costs directly related to the permit program.

The SFMTA will also charge a $3 fee at the Customer Service Center for services that could otherwise be conducted online or at a satellite sales location, such as paying citations, purchasing fare media (except senior, disabled and youth passes) and parking cards.

The SFMTA, like almost all transit agencies in the United States, faces an ongoing budget deficit because of the global and national recession. These changes were approved at the February 26 SFMTA Board of Directors meeting in order to address a current year deficit of at least $12.1 million.
