Planning for a High Turnover

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) begins a two-year tryout of new parking technologies.

"SFMTA anticipates that motorists will find parking spaces more quickly, since variable prices will increase turnover. The result, says the agency, will be less circling, fewer double-parked cars, cleaner air, and safer streets for bicyclists and pedestrians."
