BART opens up extra long-term parking spaces for holiday travelers

BART is opening up extra Airport/Long-Term parking spaces this holiday season and is urging the public to purchase their parking permits early as the agency expects a heavy demand from people who are getting ready to fly out of town.  Permits are available now, but only online at www.bart.gov/parking . BART does not sell permits at any stations. 

500 ADDITIONAL AIRPORT/LONG-TERM SPACES 
From November 22 through November 29, 2010, and then again from December 17, 2010, through January 3, 2011, BART will make 500 additional parking spaces available for Airport/Long Term parking reservations. Reserved spaces are available at most East Bay BART lots for just $5 per day. Reservations for Airport/Long Term parking are also available at the Colma, South San Francisco, San Bruno and Millbrae BART stations for just $6 per day. Visit www.bart.gov/parking for more information or to make your reservation. Drivers who do not have Airport/Long-Term parking permits are subject to the 24-hour weekday time limit on parking in all BART lots. The fine for violating this provision is $100.

BEST TO PARK BEFORE 10:00 A.M. 
BART guarantees customers an Airport/Long-Term parking spot if they get to the parking lot before 10:00 a.m.  After 10:00 a.m., customers can park in any available space, but BART cannot guarantee them a spot when they arrive. 


PARKING RULES IN EFFECT ON CHRISTMAS EVE & NEW YEAR’S EVE 
Although Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are all BART parking holidays, BART considers Friday, December 24, 2010, which is Christmas Eve, and Friday, Dec. 31, 2010, which is New Year's Eve, both normal weekdays, and BART Police will enforce all parking regulations.
