The fee to park at the Richmond BART station will increase from $1 daily to $1.50 starting Jan. 20, and from $2.50 to $3 at El Cerrito Del Norte station on Jan. 26, the transit agency announced.
All but six BART stations will see 50-cent increases in the daily parking fee as part of a relatively new pricing system that sets rates based upon demand.
The transit agency tracks parking lot usage every six months, and if a lot is full then the daily parking fee can increase by a half-dollar. If the lot is less than 95-percent full, then the fee can decrease by 50 cents.
But the total price can’t go above $3 per day, per BART’s parking fee policy.
“All revenue raised from these new fees will go to programs for improved station access, rehabilitation, and modernization,” the transit agency said.
Here’s the list of parking fee changes system-wide and when they will take effect:
Tuesday, Jan. 20
Bay Fair ($2.50), Fremont ($3), Fruitvale ($3), Lafayette ($3), Lake Merritt ($3), Orinda ($3), Pittsburg/Bay Point ($3), Pleasant Hill ($3), Richmond ($1.50), Rockridge ($3), San Leandro ($3), South Hayward ($1.50), Union City ($3), Walnut Creek ($3).
