Pay More For Muni

In April, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) board voted on its next budget and approved a number of hikes in fines, fees and ridership tickets.

Most of the fines and fees — such as annual residential parking permits or street cleaning violations — only rose by a couple dollars. Not all fines rose; many people will be happy to learn that Traffic Code Section 103, “Driving Through Parades,” is remaining unchanged at $100. Meanwhile cash fares for public transit riders will go up $0.25 each for adult and discount fares, while the agency is expanding free fares for low- and moderate-income riders. Monthly passes will also cost a few dollars more, starting Sept. 1, 2014.
