Phase II temporary parking changes at Lafayette starts 11/18 (Update)

Update: START DATE HAS CHANGED DUE TO RAIN DELAYS--now 11/18/2017

We are continuing to make improvements to station access and the parking lots at Lafayette Station. When fully completed, this project will increase the number of ADA-compliant parking spaces, improve signs, replace paving, improve circulation through the lots, improve pedestrian safety and access, increase motorcycle parking, and improve the bus zones and passenger drop off areas.

In addition, the project will include a number of improvements as part of our sustainability goals. We will create cleaner storm water runoff entering the Happy Valley Creek Watershed, increase the number of trees, improve other landscaping and irrigation, and add LED lighting.

The second phase of the project will see the closing of Lot A, and the Happy Valley Rd. entrance, and the reopening of Lot B. We will return to the previous traffic pattern for entering and exiting the station from Deer Hill Road. Lot B will have accessible parking spaces and motorcycle parking spaces only. Bus, Taxi, and passenger drop off areas will move. Please refer to the signs to find where to park. 

While lot A is closed, additional permit parking will be available in Lot C immediately east and uphill of the station. Permit spaces are also available in the Permit lot on the south (Downtown) side of the station. Enter off of Happy Valley Road. (Click here for map).

The entire project will take approximately 6 months. Safe walking and bike paths will be available throughout the construction. Follow the signs and stay behind protective barriers.

Some Carpool/Permit parking is available on the south side of the station.

Please see the map on the reverse of this notice for the Phase 2 changes. There will be signs and fencing around the work areas. Please watch for these and follow instructions from the work crews and BART employees.

During construction, you can use County Connection bus routes 6 and 25 to get to the station. For more information go to: https://countyconnection.com/maps-schedules/

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
