President’s Day Muni Schedule and Parking Enforcement
On Monday, President’s Day holiday, Muni will operate on a Saturday schedule.
Parking meters and seven day street sweeping will be enforced citywide on the holiday. Commuter tow away, residential parking permits and Monday-Friday daytime street sweeping will not be enforced.
Meters on Port of San Francisco property, including The Embarcadero and Fisherman’s Wharf, will be enforced seven days per week, except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
Hazards are always subject to ticketing and towing.
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.
Parking Control Officers will issue citations to vehicles at expired meters. Pre-payment will be accepted before noon and the payment will not be credited until noon when meters are in effect. For example, if you park at 10 a.m. and need to stay until 2 p.m., you can pre-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: www.paybyphone.com. If you choose to pay by phone, the displays on the meters themselves will not change and will continue to read “expired” after the transaction is complete. Parking control officers will see that payments were made on their wireless handheld devices and will not cite the vehicle for the expired meter.
