Surge pricing for nonresident admission at tourist attractions clears first hurdle | The San Francisco Examiner

Surge pricing for admission of non-residents to visit four popular tourist attractions was backed Thursday by a Recreation and Park committee.

As reported by The Examiner on Wednesday, the plan would allow the Recreation and Park Department to raise non-resident admission fees by as much as 50 percent and decrease them by 25 percent for the Japanese Tea Garden, Coit Tower Elevator, San Francisco Botanical Gardens and the Conservatory of Flowers.

The plan would help the department generate revenue and also manage level of attendance.

It would not impact resident admission prices.

The department said they are proposing the new pricing scheme at a time when they are joining The City’s SF For All pass, which will allow 225,000 low-income residents free admission to the Japanese Tea Garden and the Conservatory of Flowers. Admission for residents into the Botanical Gardens is currently free.
