BART to Ring in 2015 With Increased Parking Fees

Posted By on Tue, Dec 30, 2014 at 3:10 PM

Your New Year's Resolution to save more money seems to directly conflict with BART's New Year's Resolution to make more money. 

The transit agency announced this week it will hike the cost to park your car at various stations by a whopping 50 cents. That doesn't sound like much until you realize that BART parking is ow more expensive than a gallon of gasoline — today. 

The fee increase means commuters will be shelling out $3 at most of the targeted stations. Here's a rundown of the new parking fees:

Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Bay Fair ($2.50), Fremont ($3), Fruitvale ($3), Lafayette ($3), Lake Merritt ($3), Orinda ($3), Pittsburg/Bay Point ($3), Pleasant Hill ($3), Richmond ($1.50), Rockridge ($3), San Leandro ($3), South Hayward ($1.50), Union City ($3), Walnut Creek ($3).

Monday, January 26, 2015
Ashby ($3), Castro Valley ($3), Colma ($3), Dublin/Pleasanton ($3), El Cerrito Del Norte ($3), El Cerrito Plaza ($3), Glen Park ($3), MacArthur ($3), North Berkeley ($3), San Bruno ($3), South San Francisco ($2.50),West Dublin/Pleasanton ($3), and West Oakland ($7).

No Change in Daily Fees
Millbrae ($2), Daly City ($3), Concord ($1), Hayward ($1), North Concord ($1) and Coliseum ($1).

As we've told you before, BART analyzes its parking usage and fees every six months; if a lot is full most of the time, the price to park will increase, if the lot is less than 95 percent full, the fee might decrease by 50 cents. 

BART says that all revenue raised from these new fees will go to programs for improved station access, rehabilitation, and modernization. 

Happy New Year!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
