Parking
The Richmond BART station has a daily parking for a fee of $2 per day. The daily parking fees vary by station and are posted at each station. Daily fee parkers may park in the designated “Fee” area of a station. To park at the Richmond BART station, fees are required Monday through Friday from 4:00 am – 3:00 pm. If you arrive after 3 pm and exit before 4 am, parking is free.
There are 4 ways to pay for parking:

1. EZ Rider Parking Linked to Your Clipper Card
Using a Clipper card makes you eligible for EZ Rider Parking on days you ride BART. Just set up an EZ Rider Parking account with a credit/debit card and your Clipper card serial number at the BART parking website called "EZ Rider". Once you register, you will receive a hang tag, which you display in your car. To pay for parking, simply tag your Clipper card at a Parking Validation Machine after entering the fare gates. This deducts the daily fee charge from your EZ Rider Parking account only on the days that you park and tag the validation machine.

2. Cash Payment
A. Proceed through the fare gates and go to addfare/parking validation machine. B. Enter your stall number. C. Insert your cash. D. Take your receipt from the bottom tray of the parking validation machine.

3. BART Blue Ticket
This is for use only if you use a blue ticket to enter the faregates. A BART Blue ticket is the paper/plastic ticket that you receive when you purchase your fare ticket at the station.
A. Proceed through the fare gates and go to addfare/parking validation machine. B. Insert your blue BART ticket. The total value required on that ticket prior to entering must be at least the minimum ride's fare from that location plus the daily parking fee in effect. C. Enter your stall number. D.
