Excelsior - Mission Terrace/Cayuga Parking Survey

Dear Neighbor,

Thank you for taking the time to respond to this important survey about parking in the Excelsior and Mission Terrace/Cayuga neighborhoods.  

At the request of District 11 Supervisor, Ahsha Safai, and many neighborhood organizations, the SFMTA has developed this survey to gather important data that will guide the decision-making process for how best to improve availability of on-street parking. Your individual responses are entirely confidential and will be used for research purposes only. Your data will not be shared with anyone.

No decisions have been made and this survey is solely designed to gather information.

Questions with an asterisk (*) must be answered for your survey to be counted. Except for Question #1, the survey is requesting information about your entire household. A household includes all the persons who occupy a housing unit or single address whether related or not. A housing unit is a house, an apartment, a mobile home, a mother-in-law unit, a group of rooms, or a single room that is occupied as separate living quarters that has a unique mailing address.**

Please complete this survey by March 30, 2019.

Often, the best option for improving parking availability in residential areas is Residential Permit Parking (RPP).  One of the questions in this survey asks about whether or not you would like RPP in your neighborhood. 

The RPP program improves residents’ access to on-street parking near their home by limiting parking for non-residents or those without a permit to two hours or less.  Residents with permits are exempt from time limits.  In newly established RPP Areas, residents are limited to one permit per driver and two permits per household.  Households with more than two drivers may petition the SFMTA for up to two additional permits.  There are also permits for in-home medical and child care providers.  Commercial vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of less than 6,000 pounds are eligible for permits. 

The current annual RPP permit fee is $136.  For more information about RPP, please go to our website at

Again, thank you in advance for your participation. 

**Note: If there is a separate living area, such as a converted garage, basement or other structure that does not have its own unique postal address, please count its occupants as part of your household.
