An additional 820 spaces have been set aside for airport/long-term parking, bringing the number of those parking spaces to 1,640, according to BART.

Parking permits for airport/long-term parking at BART stations are available to purchase online at www.bart.gov/parking.

The parking permits may not be purchased at BART stations, according to the agency.
