North Berkeley $1.00 daily parking fee starts June 19

Beginning Monday, June 19, 2006 BART will be implementing a $1.00 daily parking fee at North Berkeley Station as part of its paid parking program. The program is being implemented at BART's 10 busiest stations in the East Bay. Payment of parking fees will be required on weekdays between 4:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The fee program, combined with existing programs, will offer customers a variety of parking options while helping BART maintain high quality service and help meet its difficult financial challenges.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FEE & PERMIT PARKING
Fee Parking areas are for customers who intend to pay the $1.00 daily parking fee. Permit Parking areas are for customers who purchase a single day, monthly reserved or airport/long term parking permit before arriving at the station. Please park in numbered spaces only. New signs will be installed designating Permit and Fee areas. After 10 a.m., any available space becomes a daily paid (fee) space.

Daily Fee Payment
Customers using the daily fee payment area should park their car, take note of their parking stall number and then follow these procedures:

If you already have a BART ticket:

1. Proceed through the fare gates and go to addfare/parking validation machine.
2. Insert your train ticket into the addfare/parking validation machine and enter your parking space number.
3. Add your parking fee to the cost of your BART fare.
4. The parking fee will be deducted from your ticket and you will be provided with a receipt.

You may also buy a single round trip ticket and add your parking fee at time of purchase.

Note: customers may also pay the daily parking fee in cash at the addfare/parking validation machine. Customers with green or red BART tickets must use cash to pay for parking.

Other Parking Options (do not require validation)
Single Day Reserved: Customers can be assured of having a parking space held until 10 a.m. by reserving it in advance online before arriving at the station. Customers print and display the permit in their car. The cost is $4.00 per day. As many as 10 single day reserved permits may be purchased at one time.

Monthly Reserved: Customers can also save time by buying a monthly permit online. Monthly reserved permits are $63.00 per month.

Airport/Long Term Permit: Customers can reserve parking for longer than 24 hours by buying this type of permit online. The cost of this program is $5.00 per day.
