For those travelling during the holidays and taking BART to SFO or OAK, you can purchase multi-day parking (formerly known as long-term parking) in advance through the BART official app at all BART stations with parking, except Milpitas and Berryessa/North San Jose stations. (Milpitas and Berryessa stations are operated by Valley Transportation Authority.) 

The official BART app is a convenient way to purchase reserved parking without needing to print out paper permits in advance. Reserve parking is $6.00 per day.

Reserved parking may be purchased in advance for a single day, multiple days (up to twenty weekdays – weekends are free) or on a monthly basis. To pay for Reserved parking on the app, select either monthly or single/multi-day reserved parking, and add a license plate and phone number to your profile. Park in the Reserved or “Permit” area. There is no need to print anything in advance or display anything inside your car.  For more information, see the Reserved Parking FAQs
