Note: This page contains budget proposals as of January and February 2010 and may not reflect actual SFMTA Board or San Francisco Board of Supervisors actions.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which operates the Municipal Railway (Muni), is proposing service modifications to most Muni bus routes and rail lines (as well as other cost-saving and revenue-generating solutions) to close a $16.9 million shortfall in its Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Operating Budget, which ends on June 30.  Significant budget deficits are also projected for Fiscal Years 2011 and 2012.

The revenue-generating solutions include:

  • Requiring $70 Fast Passes to use express bus routes and cable cars;
  • Increasing Senior, Youth and Disabled Fast Pass from $15 to $30 as of April 1 (previously scheduled to be $20 in May);
  • Increase Residential Parking Permits from $76 per year to $96 for full cost recovery; and
  • Increase parking citation fines by $2 (primarily to cover state-imposed courthouse construction costs).

The SFMTA is also proposing to eliminate free City employee parking where possible.
