The city of San Francisco is mulling a plan to ease the congestion on the 1000 block of Lombard Street that includes imposing a fee, which could range from $5-$10.
Lombard St. is one of San Francisco’s most popular attractions and is known as the crookedest street in the world. It’s so popular that on some weekends, there is a line of cars all the way down to Van Ness Avenue.
The San Francisco County Transportation Authority is contemplating the idea of charging $5 to $10 for people to drive down Lombard Street–$5 on weekdays and $10 on weekends.
Along with the fee, drivers will have to make reservations, which will be spaced out in 30 to 60 minute increments.
Ultimately, state legislators will have the final say on this proposal since it involves implementing a toll on a public street. If it passes, the new system could be in place by next summer.
