Bart wanting to raise parking fees.
Have you looked at your recent property tax bill.
Mine: BART: $ 42.75
BART BOND: $26.58.
Multiply this by all the residencies in the Bay Area.
When will it be enough for Bart?
Of course living 10 miles from the nearest station
and rarely using Bart just fuels my xxxxx for Bart

A few years ago, I listened in on a "telephone town hall". A person asked the BART representative why BART doesn't build more parking garages as BART parking is full up in the morning.

The rep stated BART's intent is not to provide sufficient parking because BART wants people to walk, ride a bike, take Uber, or take a bus instead of driving to BART.

BART's policy of limiting parking, makes BART so user unfriendly that many people, including myself, avoid taking BART. BART management is deaf to the needs of it's customer. BART management needs to be replaced with customer friendly management.
