Bay Area Rapid Transit officials today will showcase new parking payment machines that are supposed to make parking easier at a news conference in the Orinda Station.

The EZ Rider validation machine will use smart card technology to pay for both parking and BART tickets at the same time, according to a BART spokesman.

The machine is supposed to be an option at 15 stations by mid-December.

The 10 a.m. showcase will take place at the station in unincorporated Contra Costa County in Orinda at 11 Camino Pablo.
