Many San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency employees will be in for a rude awakening come next month.

That’s when the agency will begin writing tickets to those who park in an MTA lot without the necessary $80 a month permit.

The Muni Board voted unanimously to approve the change this week. Workers with free parking as part of their union contract will be exempt from the new rules.

Among other parking considerations, the board voted to allow nannies, babysitters and other childcare providers to buy residential parking permits on a trial basis.

They will also limit the length of time drivers can park at broken parking meters to two hours.
