Garages could be forced to charge flat rates again

It may soon cost a lot more to park in San Francisco.

The Municipal Transportation Agency plans to revive a long-ignored ordinance that requires garages charge a flat hourly rate, so no more early bird or monthly discounts.

This could result in drivers paying hundreds of dollars more per month and thousands of dollars more per year.

A recent report shows the move would mean $6 million per year for the Municipal Tansportation agency.
