Twice the number of Airport/Long Term parking spaces at various Bay Area Rapid Transit stations will be available for BART riders during the holidays beginning Friday.
An additional 820 spaces have been set aside for Airport/Long Term parking, bringing the total number of Airport/Long Term parking spaces to 1,640, according to BART.
Parking permits for Airport/Long Term parking at BART stations are available to purchase online at www.bart.gov/parking.
The parking permits may not be purchased at BART stations, according to the agency.
Airport/Long Term parking is available at all East Bay BART stations, excluding West Oakland, Coliseum/Oakland Airport, Union City and Lake Merritt, for $5 a day.
Peninsula stations with available Airport/Long Term parking are Colma, South San Francisco, San Bruno and Millbrae, for $6 a day, according to BART.
"We want our riders to put their holiday dollars toward traveling to their loved ones, not parking," Lynette Sweet, BART board president, said in a statement.
The additional Airport/Long Term parking spaces will be available through Jan. 6., according to the agency.
