Data Inc. of Newport Beach
Last month I visited the Bay Area from out of town. I parked at the San Bruno station lot. Nowhere was there any information on how to pay the $1 daily fee. When I returned after 3 hours in SF, I had a $35 "citation" on my windshield for "sign violation."
In subsequent correspondence with BART's out-sourced firm in NewPort Beach, I am being advised that if I don't pay the $35 citation, my car's registration will be dinged next time I renew.
What kind of semi-extortion is this by BART?
BART provides no information to out-of-towners on how to pay $1 daily fee -- no signage in parking lot -- then dings for $35. How often is this happening to tourists and visotors? Has anyone else had this kind of experience? I'm an out-of-towner, not a daily BART rider. What's up with BART re parking?
