Street Parking in San Francisco - How to Extend Meter Time without Returning to Your Car

Add Money to the Parking Meter by Phone

San Francisco introduced "PaybyPhone", a system that allows you to pay with a smartphone app that's available for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry.

If you don't have a smart phone, you can also call a "PaybyPhone" toll-free phone number and dial your way to pay.  Each meter has a serial number that identifies the parking location.  This makes it convenient to add money to your meter without having to return to your car.
