A group of interested parties organized by SFMTA and the Civic Center Community Benefit District has been meeting for several months in an effort to improve the patron experience in the around the SF Performing Arts Center, as it relates to parking and traffic. We have conducted site surveys and consulted with representatives with knowledge about parking, taxi, traffic, garages, arts organizations, evening ambassadors and city administrators. On most evenings, those without a performance at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, the Civic Center Garage has many available parking spaces and the Performing Arts Garage has few if any spaces. This causes traffic jams, pedestrian hazards and frustration for all even those merely trying to drive past the performing arts buildings on Franklin. Learn about our Fall Parking Experiment.
