New parking garage at Richmond Station to open May 30; $1 daily fee
The new 750-space parking garage at our Richmond Station is now scheduled to open May 30, 2013. Once the garage opens, it will be the only location for parking at the station. The surface lot on the east side of the station will close.
When the garage opens we will begin charging a $1 daily fee for those who park in the garage between 4 am and 3 pm Monday through Friday.
There are three ways to pay for parking:
1. Clipper card: This is the easiest way to pay for your parking. Sign up in advance at www.BART.gov/parking to link your Clipper card to a hang tag for your car, and then you simply tag the card inside the paid area at a Parking Validation Machine. There is no need to remember your stall number or pay cash on a daily basis.
2. Cash: Once inside the faregates enter the stall number from your parking space into an Add Fare Machine; pay in cash, and save your receipt.
3. Blue Tickets:Once inside the faregates enter the stall number from your parking space into an Add Fare Machine; pay with your blue ticket, and save your receipt. You may only pay with a BART blue ticket if you have entered the faregates with this same ticket.
