PARKING LICENSE AGREEMENT
THIS CONTRACT LIMITS OUR LIABILITY
PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY
GENERAL CONDITIONS PERTAINING TO ALL PERMITS
The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system offers parking permits to patrons who utilize the BART system property and trains on a roundtrip basis. A BART patron is defined as one who proceeds directly into the BART station to ride the BART system train/s. All permits are and remain the property of BART and must be returned to BART’s vendor upon termination of parking privileges or upon demand by either an agent of BART and or BART’s vendor as the case may be. Should it be determined that the BART parking permit is being utilized for any other purpose then its intended and defined use, the permit may be revoked and the vehicle will be subject to citation. BART allocates a limited number of different permits (Monthly, Single Day and (APLT) Airport / Long Term) spaces at selected Stations with parking. These permits are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis.
When making any of these reservations it is important for you to carefully and correctly insert your license plate information or choose it from your account profile, as the reservation will then become associated with that license plate number and can only be validated by enforcement personnel if entered correctly. It also helps BART police in the event something should happen out of the ordinary requiring them to get in contact with you.
BART’s vendor and or agents are not authorized to make or allow any exceptions to this Agreement. No employee may nullify or waive any terms of this Agreement.
PROOF OF PAYMENT
All patrons are required to display a valid parking permit through the front windshield of the vehicle with the permit facing outward and clearly displaying the permit number. Failure to display a valid permit may result in a citation or towing.
WAITLISTS (WHERE APPLICABLE)
Some stations have waiting lists pertaining to Monthly Permit Reservations and at times these lists can become lengthy and it could possibly be some time before you work your way up and through the list and eventually obtain a parking permit at the station of your choosing. You can observe and monitor your position on the waiting list within your profile once you have joined the waiting list at a given station. By monitoring your position on the list within your profile, you will be able to estimate the time it may take for your turn on the list to come up. There are additional and important steps you need to take to maintain your position on the list and they are as follows.
- Once you have joined a waitlist you will need to update and acknowledge your intention to remain on the list once every 180 days from the time of when you added your name to the list or updated your interest in remaining on it, thereby keeping your information current and up to date and acknowledging that you still desire to remain on the list. The list then refreshes and begins re-aging from the last point in time you completed this function.
Clarification: This requirement is to serve the best interest of all patrons because at times and in some circumstances, wait list time frames can be lengthy and people for a number of reasons no longer wish or care to remain on the list. By example, this can be because individuals relocate or perhaps for some reason no longer ride the train. As the reservation system is designed to automatically notify people of their opportunity to park in a Station with a waitlist it is important the information on the waitlist be maintained accurately and up to date to avoid unnecessary delays for those patrons continuing to reside on it.
- As a matter of courtesy you will receive an email notifying and reminding you to acknowledge your position on the list and to check your information and update it within your profile approximately twenty days prior to when it is to be removed should you fail to acknowledge it. You should not however, rely solely on receiving this email as there are circumstances in which an email may not find its way through to you and as such, it would be best for you to also have an alternate means of reminding yourself of the need to do this prior to the 180 day period lapsing. The aging of the wait list is automatic and begins aging 180 days from every time that you acknowledge your desire to remain on the list, thereby allowing you to do it more frequently should you so desire to do so.
PAYMENTS & PAYMENT TERMS
Rates & Use - Permit rates vary by permit type and station under the terms and conditions as detailed herein. The on-line reservation system will detail the rates at the varying Stations for you prior to completing your reservation.
