Low-income youths could soon ride San Francisco's Muni for free, while drivers who park in the city on Sundays might have to pay up.
Those controversial proposals were approved Tuesday by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's Board of Directors, which unanimously passed the budget for Muni, parking, traffic and taxis over the next two years.
Yet for those programs to become reality, the budget still has to clear several hurdles that include gaining the Board of Supervisors' approval.
Overall, the budget calls for spending $821 million in the new fiscal year that begins July 1, and $840.5 million the following year. That plan is projected to close deficits of $19.6 million and $33.6 million, respectively.
