BART Contactless Parking Payment Now Available Systemwide

June 29, 2020 19:30 pm · 12 comments

BART is expanding contactless parking payment via the official BART app to all stations that offer parking.

With the feature, riders can park at any station and pay for their parking stall on their phones through the app, allowing them to avoid touching payment machines.

The new daily fee parking payment feature allows riders to pay through their credit card, debit card, Venmo or PayPal account. Riders can choose paying individually for each parking transaction or creating a wallet which will deduct parking fees from the balance. A convenience fee may be applied at a later date for individual parking transactions so riders are encouraged to create a wallet which will automatically load $25 each time the balance drops below $5.

To use the new daily fee parking payment feature, riders will need to download the latest version of the official BART app, create a profile, enter a Clipper card number and a parking payment method (credit card, debit card, Venmo or PayPal account). After parking, riders will need to pay for their daily fee parking before they tag into the station with the Clipper card registered with the official BART app profile.

And if you only use BART a few times a year can you still pay with cash at a machine? And will they charge extra for that like very thing else?

We drove past Concord Bart this morning. They’re not only contact-less , -they seem to be customer-less also.

You know, the whole of civilization is not on the computer, nor do they want to be, and pretending like they are is not going to make it so.

We can’t all live under a rock, can’t we?

So Bart is announcing that they have spent money on rolling out a new feature where they can take our money more easily. Excuse me if I am not as excited as they are. Plus fare evasion tactics lol. How about catering to the people who actually pay money instead of worrying about the dirty rats (that resemble humans) that ride BART otherwise

I remember the good all days, like two years ago when my family would all take the kids and grandkids on a ride on BART. It was relatively dirty and relatively unsafe but at least it was still fun for the kids. Nowadays we wouldn’t touch that place with a 10 foot stick to quote my dad.

Again, any other money grab where they will use your money if you are foolish enough to sign up for this “Feature” and float the funds you do not use. So if you are foolish enough to sign up for this and you decide you want your money back for whatever reason, how and will they refund your money back to you????

How stupid does BART and their gang think we are, oh, excuse me, we keep voting for loser-entitlement-money grabbing-leftists politicians who say they will do one thing and then reverse what they promised-how foolish of me to ask this question.

The best way to have contactless Bart is to not ride Bart.

Boycott BART, let it go BK, and then privatize.
