Car sharing coming to more San Francisco neighborhoods 

After resolving a dispute over where spaces should go, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted 11-0 Tuesday approving a new program that has The City partnering with City CarShare to convert neighborhood parking spaces into spaces designated for the car rental service.

Supervisor Malia Cohen, who represents District 10, was initially critical of the program for not including spaces in the southeastern section of San Francisco, but that changed after she raised the objection. Two spaces were added that area.

The company will pay $150 a month to rent each space, and those who park illegally in would receive a $100 fine and could be towed.

The pilot program is expected to be rolled out this fall and include eight parking spaces. If all goes well, more would be added.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency board of directors will vote to finalize the exact parking spaces to be converted.
