"What were they thinking ?"
Over this past weekend, BART decided to convert 1/3 of the parking spaces on the Dublin side of the Dublin/Pleasanton station from $1 daily use to reserved/monthly parking.
I can understand if they slowly decided to increase the reserved spaces, perhaps 2-3 parking space rows at a time ... but 1/3 ? If I were to guess, there were probably 300 spaces empty this morning in this newly converted section.
Up until now, BART has done a good job of communicating the upcoming changes to the parking areas as they commence construction of a parking structure (finally). I would have liked some type of warning last week that such an aggressive reduction of available daily parking was about to occur.
