BART doubles parking for Thanksgiving weekend

Airport and long-term spaces are available at $5 per day at all East Bay stations with parking lots, excluding the West Oakland, Coliseum-Oakland Airport and Lake Merritt stations. Airport and long-term parking also will be available at the Colma, South San Francisco, San Bruno and Millbrae stations at $6 per day.

Permits are available at . First-time customers can learn how to buy a permit by watching a video on BARTtv News at .

For guaranteed parking in airport and long-term spaces, customers must arrive before 10 a.m., after which customers must park at any available space.

Friday will be considered a weekday and all parking regulations will be enforced. Vehicles parked over the four-day weekend without permits will be subject to citations.
