POLL: Should San Francisco impose a toll on downtown drivers? 

The San Francisco County Transportation Authority is convinced a price tag on downtown driving will reduce gridlock and boost public-transit ridership.

Since last year, transportation officials have been studying the feasibility of levying a user fee to drive in the Financial District and the South of Market neighborhoods — areas that experience heavy congestion from commuters accessing the Bay Bridge and U.S. Highway 101.


Supporters say it helps reduce greenhouse gases and congestion, and as a result, speeds up traffic and boosts transit reliability and ridership. Skeptics say a toll would discourage people from patronizing downtown businesses, restaurants and services.

What do you think? Should San Francisco impose a toll on downtown drivers?
