Parking lot usage is evaluated every 6 months. If the lot at a station is full, then the daily parking fee may increase by 50¢. If the lot is less than 95% full, then the fee may decrease by 50¢.BART's parking fee policy includes a $3 parking fee cap, except at West Oakland. Single Day, Monthly and Airport/Long-Term reserved parking permits purchased in advance are also covered by this policy. All revenue generated from these new fees will be placed into a special account only to be used for programs for improved station access, including shuttle and feeder service to stations, and much needed station rehabilitation, and modernization.

3 ways to pay:
1. Clipper card: This is the easiest way to pay for your parking. Sign up in advance at to link your Clipper card to a hang tag for your car, and then you simply tag the card inside the paid area at a Parking Validation Machine. There is no need to remember your stall number or pay cash on a daily basis. (Not available at Glen Park Station).
2. Cash: Once inside the fare gates enter the stall number from your parking space into an Add Fare Machine; pay in cash, and save your receipt.
3. Blue Tickets: Once inside the fare gates enter the stall number from your parking space into an Add Fare Machine; pay with your blue ticket, and save your receipt. You may only pay with a BART blue ticket if you have entered the fare gates with this same ticket.
