SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Tourists looking to drive down San Francisco’s crooked Lombard Street will not have to pay a toll or make reservations.
That’s because Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed a bill over the weekend that would have allowed the city to test a fee and reservation system for the famous street.
Newsom said he is concerned a pricing program would create “social equity issues” and wants to keep the street accessible for all.
The city’s transportation department had recommended $5 per car on weekdays and $10 on weekends and holidays to address complaints of gridlock, noise, and litter from tourists.
Officials estimate 6,000 people visit Lombard Street daily in the summer.
