Sunday Meter Operation Reminder
Parking meters are now operating on Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. throughout the city, except at Fisherman’s Wharf and the Port of San Francisco. Meters at Fisherman’s Wharf will continue to operate Monday to Sunday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Meters in the Port of San Francisco jurisdiction (along the waterfront and some side streets) will continue to operate from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Sunday. All meters citywide, including the Wharf and the Port, will have at least four hour time limits on Sunday.

The grace period remins in effect this Sunday and Parking Control Officers will issue reminders, not citations, on cars at expired meters. Pre-payment is allowed on parking meters for cars parked before noon and will not be charged until noon when meters are enforced. For example, if you park at 10 a.m. and need to stay until 2 p.m., you can pay at 10 a.m. for two hours of parking to cover noon to 2 p.m. Pre-payment of meters can begin as early as 4:30 a.m. on all SFMTA meters every day of the week.

To pay or extend time at a meter, customers can also use the PayByPhone service by dialing 1-866-490-7275 or downloading the app online at: If you choose to pay by phone or pre-pay, the displays on the meters themselves will not change and will continue to read “expired” after the transaction is complete. However, parking control officers will see that payments were made on their wireless handheld devices and will not cite vehicles at those meters.
