Crooked Street Toll Coming

Following the release of a report by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, District 2 Supervisor Mark Farrell announced his support for charging motorists a toll for driving on the famous swerving section of Lombard Street. The proposal would require state legislation to authorize a reservation and pricing system; Farrell is working with state Senator Scott Wiener on that legislation.

“With over two million people a year visiting the ‘Crookedest Street,'” Farrell said, “this community and expert-driven approach is essential to maintaining public safety and ensuring that visitors can continue to enjoy this world-famous landmark for years to come.”

In addition to the toll system, the Transportation Authority calls for better enforcement of existing laws, having professional tourism companies manage visitors, and improving signage and other infrastructure.
