OAKLAND (KCBS)— BART fares and parking fees are going up. The transit company’s board of directors overwhelmingly decided in a vote in Oakland on Thursday to approve the proposed hike.
Daily parking fees could be increased by 50 cents when lots are full with a cap at $3. West Oakland parkers will continue to be charged a flat $5 rate.
“It’s all very demand based. The idea is parking charges that are fair, but that also start freeing up spaces at the most heavily used stations,” said BART Board of Directors President Tom Radulovich.
