Beginning Monday, September 10, 2007 BART will implement a $1.00 daily parking fee at Fremont Station as part of its paid parking program, currently in effect at twelve East Bay stations. Payment of parking fees will be required on weekdays between 4:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The daily fee program, combined with existing programs, such as airport/long term parking, offer customers a variety of parking options at these BART stations.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FEE & PERMIT PARKING
Fee parking areas are for customers who intend to pay the $1.00 daily parking fee. Permit parking areas are for customers who purchase a single day, monthly reserved or airport/long term parking permit before arriving at the station. Please park in numbered spaces only. New signs will be installed designating Permit and Fee areas. After 10 a.m., any available space becomes a daily fee space.
At Fremont Station, the Permit parking area is located in the southeastern part of the station. The remaining parking areas will require the $1 daily fee. Carpool parking is available on the west side of the station. Carpoolers displaying required permits have reserved spaced until 10 a.m. but must pay the $1 daily parking fee.
Customers using daily fee parking should park their car, take note of their parking stall number and then follow these procedures: If you DAILY FEE PAYMENT

Insert your BART ticket into the addfare/parking validation machine and enter your parking space number. 3. Add your parking fee to the cost of your BART fare. 4. The parking fee will be deducted from your ticket and you will be provided with a receipt. You may also buy a single round trip ticket and add your parking fee at time of purchase.
