Jasper's proposal above has a lot of sensible elements (not sure I agree precisely with all of them, but conceptually yes).

As for the politics of it, it does not need to occur all at once.

For example, start with the simple change to having smaller RPP zones. I favor neighborhoods over ANC SMDs, which don't necessarily follow sensible borders, but the gist is the same. At a minimum, that will help sort out people who drive to metro stops or all over town, and provide a better sense of each neighborhood's needs.

Second, change the guest passes to the day passes. Make them unlimited to start, especially if there's a charge (or start with 10-20 free passes for each house). These are easy--all you need is a scratch-off date mechanism, with no need for the plate, etc.)

Then, down the road worry about raising fees.
