I'm a bit confused, and maybe someone in the know can clarify this for me: the new parking structure boasts 1,500 parking spots. In the short term, this is in addition to the current surface parking at the station. Once construction begins on the new condos/apartments, though, these surface spots will disappear. In addition, I had read that the condos/apartments will be given designated spots within the new parking garage. Once this happens, what is the total number of spots available for BART riders?
In other words, will the new parking garage result in a NET gain or a NET loss of parking spaces for BART riders once the condos/apartments are built? Who would have this information?

No one have the answer to the question? Seems to me an important distinction: will there be more or will there be fewer spaces for BART riders at the Dublin/Pleasanton station, after the surface parking is eaten up by the new condo/apartment expansion?

A good question. I would like to know the answer also. These are the people you should ask, Supervisor Scott Haggerty, Dublin Mayor Janet Lockhart, Sen. Ellen Corbett, Assemblyman Guy Houston and BART officials, then let us know.
