BART taking comment on proposed parking fee

BART passengers have just over a week to sound off on a proposed fee increase to park at East Bay stations.

BART is taking public input until Dec. 18 on a plan to triple parking rates over the next two years.

Currently drivers either park for free or pay $1 a day to park. The plan would allow 50 cent increases twice a year based on demand.

BART charges $5 to park at the West Oakland station and stations in San Mateo County already have pricing based on demand.

Just a 50 cent parking hike would generate some $5 million for BART.
