The SFMTA is facing a $19.6 million budget deficit for the coming fiscal year, which starts in July.

To close that deficit, the agency’s board of directors is considering changes that could include activating parking meters on Sundays, extending meter hours on other days, or adding new metered spaces in some areas of the city.

SFMTA officials are gathering the public’s input and will present it to the board at its April 3 meeting, SFMTA spokesman Paul Rose said.

Rose said members of the public have brought up a variety of issues at the previous four meetings, including suggestions about Muni service in general.

Today’s fifth and final town hall meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. in Herbst Hall at Waldorf High School, located at 470 West Portal Ave.

People who would like to comment but will not be able to attend the meeting can send an e-mail to or call 311.
