BART increasing the number of long-term parking spots for holiday season

Bay Area residents looking to leave the region for the holiday season will get a little assistance from BART with their travel plans.
The regional transit agency is nearly doubling the number of its long-term parking spaces near the Oakland and San Francisco airports in anticipation of the heavy travel crowds.

An additional 540 spaces have been added at BART’s long-term parking lots, which include all the East Bay stations, excluding West Oakland and the Coliseum, and the Colma, San Bruno, and Millbrae stations in the Peninsula. There are now a total of 1435 long-term parking spots available. BART will return to their normal parking levels on January 4.

Travelers can park their cars in the East Bay for $5 a day, and in the Peninsula for $6 a day. Permits for the long-term parking spots are available now, but only online at www.bart.gov/parking. The permits are not currently being sold at any BART stations.

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
