Parking fee changes at several stations take effect Feb. 2

Beginning Monday, February 2, 2009, the daily parking fee at Daly City and Colma stations will be increased by $1. The new daily parking fee at Daly City Station will be $3 while the new Colma Station parking fee will be $2. In addition, also beginning Monday, February 2, 2009, BART will begin charging a $1 daily parking fee at Millbrae, San Bruno and South San Francisco stations.

These parking fee changes are in accordance with the BART West Bay Parking Policy adopted by the BART Board of Directors in July, 2002. Payment of parking fees is required on weekdays between 4:00 AM and  3:00 PM. The fee program combined with existing programs will offer customers a variety of parking options while helping BART maintain high quality service and meet its difficult financial challenges.
   
DAILY PARKING FEE PAYMENT
 
The easiest way to pay for daily parking is to purchase an EZ Rider card. Simply pass the card over the scanner located in the paid area of the BART station and you will have paid the parking fee. Once you have signed up for an EZ Rider card, you will be sent a plastic hang tag with a unique serial number. The hang tag must be visibly attached to your rear view mirror. Each time you use your EZ Rider card to pay for parking, money is automatically deducted from your account. Once the balance falls below a certain level, it is replenished from your credit card or bank account. To obtain an E-Z Rider card, go to https://ezrider.bart.gov/ezrider/
 
Without an EZ Rider card, you will need to take note of your parking stall number and then follow these procedures:

1. Proceed through the fare gates and go to addfare/parking validation machine.    
2. Insert your blue BART ticket into the addfare/parking validation machine.
3. Take your receipt from the bottom tray of the parking validation machine. 

BART customers may also pay the daily parking fee in cash at the addfare/parking validation machine.
