BART bumps parking fees at four stations

Parking fees are set to go up by 50 cents per day next month at three BART stations in the East Bay and one on the Peninsula, according to BART officials.

Parking rates will rise to $3 per day at Millbrae, $2 per day at Concord and North Concord/Martinez and $1.50 per day at the Coliseum station in Oakland, officials said.

The increases take effect Dec. 7 and will be in effect for at least six months.

BART officials evaluate parking lot usage every six months and adjust parking fees up or down based on usage. Lots that are full might see a fee increase of 50 cents, up to a maximum of $3 per day at most stations, while lots that are less than 95 percent full might see a decrease.

The changes affect Single Day, Monthly and Airport/Long-Term parking as well.

Parking fees can be paid for with a Clipper Card, which must be linked to BART’s parking program, EZ Rider, in advance of use. Parking fees can also be paid with cash or with a Blue Ticket, which must also be used to enter the fare gates.
