Budget worries for BART means you will soon be paying more to park at most BART stations. Officials are now planning to impose or raise fees at seven BART parking lots within the next six months to help balance an $8 million budget deficit.

BART's governing board approved a plan last night to charge $1 for parking at stations in South San Francisco, San Bruno, Millbrae, San Leandro and Castro Valley.

A $1 increase is planned for two other lots. After the increase, commuters would end up paying $2 to park at the Colma station, and $3 at the Daly City station. Other revised budget measures include backing away from a previous plan to replace seats and carpeting on 100 BART train cars.
