SFMTA is considering expanding its Transit Impact Development Fees from commercial to residential properties.  Residential developments would be charged between $5,000 to over $11,000 per unit depending on its size.  This would generate much needed revenue for SFMTA from $2 to $5 MM a year.

Is now the time to expand these Fees?  What do you think?

SFMTA needs money.  We need to improve service nad safety for MUNI.  Is this a reasonable way to get the revenue?
