BART’s Antioch station will open 850 additional parking spaces with contactless parking payment, officials with the transit district said.

“BART has made a series of improvements at Antioch during the pandemic that many residents who have been working from home may not know about,” said Board President Mark Foley.

The station now offers parking with no wait list for monthly parking, an easier way to pay, and additional station agents, Foley said.

Riders at all BART stations can now pay a daily fee or reserve parking through the official BART app. Riders can also purchase monthly parking through the app.

Other improvements as part of the project include the construction of a new ADA accessible pathway, construction of a multiuse pedestrian/bicycle path along Slatten Ranch Road and redesigns to improve passenger circulation.
