By Joel Keller, District 2 Director, Bay Area Rapid Transit District
The BART Board will consider both BART to Antioch fares and BART to Antioch parking fees at a public hearing on November 16th meeting. On December 7th, the Board will be asked to approve the BART to Antioch fares and parking fees.
The proposal will extend BART’s distance-based fare structure for the Pittsburg Center Station and the Antioch station, resulting in a 15 cent increase at Pittsburg Center and an 80 cent increase at Antioch.
Sample BART to Antioch Fares:
Pittsburg/Bay Point to Embarcadero: $6.70
Pittsburg Center to Embarcadero: $6.85
Antioch to Embarcadero: $7.50
There will be 262 parking spaces on Bliss Avenue near Railroad Avenue serving the Pittsburg Center Station and 1012 parking spaces at the Antioch Station.
The parking fees are proposed to be effective upon commencement of operation of the Pittsburg Center and Antioch stations as follows:
Daily Fee Parking: $3.00 per day
Permit Fee Parking:
Monthly Reserved Permit: $105 per month
Single Day Reserved Permit: $6.00 per day
Airport/Long-Term Permit: $7.00 per day
