Green zones are often used for areas where errands are short such as dry cleaners, florists, small convenience stores, postal centers and hardware stores. Applications for green zones are reviewed on a case-by case basis. Green zone requests may be denied if there is private off-street parking available or if your business's transactions are not usually short-term in nature.

A processing fee is required for a green zone. For information about these visit SFMTA’s white/green zone fee schedule.  Green zone applications must be approved at a public hearing. If your application is approved, green zones are required to be renewed every two years.
