Actually, the residential parking permit costs about $100 per year, not per month!

It depends on what you compare it to. It's certainly easier than many popular neighborhoods in the city, but it's still San Francisco.

I live right on Clement St in a busy area, but I can usually find a spot within 5 minutes or so within a couple of blocks of home, depending on the time of day and day of week. Sunny weekends it can get quite a bit more difficult because so many people come to shop. Then I might have to park several blocks away. I once resorted to parking at a metered spot but most of the time I can find something reasonable.

I do have a short car. If you have a station wagon, you should be prepared for more difficulty than I have.

The parking in the Inner Richmond is relatively easy compared to other parts of the city, with Russian Hill, Pacific Heights, Nob Hill and the Marina being the most difficult.

For residents of inner richmond, the street parking is first come, first serve. However, the downside is that there is street cleaning where you have to move your car during those times.

From the sfmta website: In general, business streets are swept four times per week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays) on one side of the street and three times per week on the other side (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays). They are swept between 6am and 8am. Additionally, sections of some business streets are swept seven days per week on both sides of the street between midnight and 6am. They include: (1) Embarcadero; (2) Mission Street; (3) Market Street; (4) North of Market; (5) Third Street; (6) Chinatown/North Beach; (7) Sixth Street; and (8) Van Ness/South Van Ness.

More information on street cleaning and exact days here:

There is permit street parking available near inner richmond for residents, which would fall under the N permit, which will cost you $100 a month.

There are large sections of metered only parking along the major streets, such as Geary and Balboa, but there are limited to an hour max during working hours and Saturdays.
