BART has made a proposal that includes a 10 percent increase on all of its fares and plans for fewer trains being in service on nights and Sundays. The proposal would also introduce parking fees at many of the BART stations, although both the Lafayette and Orinda stations already charge for parking.
The changes, which are in response to the financial difficulties BART is facing in the current economy, will be discussed at a public hearing on May 28. If BART follows through with the proposal, the changes would go into effect July 1.
Train intervals on nights and Sundays would increase from every 15 minutes to every 20 minutes.
