SFMTA ADJUSTS PARKING METER RATES
Rates at the "smart" parking meters installed throughout the City are being adjusted this month, reflecting utilization. Rates are decreasing at 10% of the meters, staying the same at 73%, and increasing by $0.25 per hour at 17%.
In the Mission Bay area, the smart meters are located on Berry, King and Townsend, although more are planned as construction winds up at new properties along Third and Fourth Streets.
Rates are staying the same at most meters at Mission Bay, with the exception of a few on Berry Street, which will increase by the allowable $0.25 per hour (only at certain times).
BART allows bikes on board at any time
Bikes will be allowed on all BART trains permanently, effective December 1st. The only exception to this is during peak commute hours (7am-9am; 4:30pm-6:30pm), when bikes are not allowed in the first 3 cars of any train, on already crowded cars, or to block doorways and aisles. Bikes are not allowed in the first train car at any time. Cyclists must also continue to yield priority seating to seniors and those with disabilities on trains at all times.
BART has run 3 "Bikes on Board" pilots in the past year; all of them successful. It has also upgraded signage, secure bike parking and other facilities to support increased bike usage on the trains.
major construction to close streets in mission bay
Street closures will begin on both Mission Rock and 16th Streets on October 1st which will close lanes on both streets for the next several months.
Mission Rock is being reconfigured between Third & Terry Francois. The street will be 'straightened' out and new sidewalks will be installed. Access to the Giants parking lot will be from Terry Francois Blvd ONLY. The street will re-open just prior to the start of baseball season in spring, 2014.
Major streetwork, utilities and other infrastructure, as well as new sidewalks will be installed on 16th Street between 7th and Third Streets in connection with UCSF hospital. This work will necessitate the closing of travel lanes in each direction, reducing travel to just one lane at some times. Vehicular traffic can expect delays. This work will also be complete by spring, 2014.
