Besides BART fare increases imposed New Year's Day, the cost to park at the two Dublin/Pleasanton BART stations will rise to $2 starting Monday, Jan. 27.

Parking fees at the Fremont, Union City, San Leandro, Fruitvale, Lake Merritt, Pittsburg/Bay Point, Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Orinda, and Rockridge stations also will bump up to $2 per day from $1.50 starting two weeks earlier, next Monday.

The fee will increase to $3 at the Daly City station, up from $2.50, and The West Oakland station fee will reach $6, a 50-cent increase.

In addition to the fee increases Jan. 27 at the Dublin/Pleasanton and West Dublin/Pleasanton stations, fees will also rise to $2 Jan. 27 at Castro Valley, El Cerrito Del Norte, El Cerrito Plaza, North Berkeley, Ashby and MacArthur stations.

There will be no price changes at the Glen Park, Richmond, South Hayward, Bay Fair, Colma, South San Francisco, San Bruno and Millbrae station parking lots.

BART officials said their policy caps the parking fee at $3 except at the West Oakland station. Usage is evaluated every six months and determines if fees should increase or be dropped.

Revenue from the parking fees goes to an account used to improve station access, such as shuttle programs, and station improvements, according to BART officials.
