Caltrain parking fees to increase next month

Increased parking fees at Caltrain station lots that were approved late last year will come into effect in July, the agency announced Wednesday.

Starting July 1, the price of parking at Caltrain station lots will increase 10 percent, adding 50 cents to the usual $5 for daily parking fees and rising from $50 to $55 for monthly parking permits.

On top of that increase, which was approved by Caltrain’s board in December 2015, the agency will begin paid parking enforcement at the Caltrain station in Belmont after it had previously been free.

Caltrain offers paid all-day parking at most stations. Although rates are the typically the same across the station lots, higher rates are sometimes charged at Caltrain’s San Jose Diridon Station.
