BART doubles long-term holiday parking

Bay Area Rapid Transit officials announced today that they will offer twice the amount of airport and long-term parking for the Thanksgiving holiday.

BART is putting aside an additional 820 parking spaces for San Francisco International Airport and Oakland International Airport customers Wednesday through Nov. 26. Parking permits are now on sale at www.bart.gov/parking. The cost per day for East Bay parking is $5. The cost for the West Bay spots is $6.

BART officials said they expect the permits to sell out and advise customers to buy them in advance.

“If we can put some smiles on our customers’ faces and reduce some of their holiday stress, that’s great,” said BART Board President Lynette Sweet in a prepared statement. “While our first priority is to our daily patrons, we know that many of our regular riders aren’t using BART during the holiday season; therefore we are able to provide hundreds of additional spaces for airport travelers.”

Long-term parking is available at all East Bay stations with parking lots, except the West Oakland, Coliseum/Oakland Airport and Lake Merritt stations. West Bay stations with available long-term parking are Colma, South San Francisco, San Bruno and Millbrae.

Drivers without a permit are subject to a 24-hour weekday time limit for all BART parking lots.
