Existing law allows a local authority to establish parking meter zones and fix the rate of fees for those zones by ordinance. Existing law prohibits a local authority from requiring payment of parking meter fees by a mobile device, as specified.
This bill would instead authorize, until January 1, 2035, in the City and County of San Francisco, a local authority to require payment of parking fees by a mobile device, if it meets certain requirements, such as adopting an accessible and equitable parking cash payment plan that does not utilize parking meters or payment centers in parking payment zones to provide reasonably accessible alternative means for payment of parking fees using cash. The bill would require a local authority to consult with specified stakeholders in the development of the plan and would require a local authority that adopts a plan to provide to its governing body and the Legislature, as specified, an evaluation of the plan to determine the plan's impact on equity, accessibility, and costs.
