    Daily fee parking is often full by 8am weekdays. Empty permit spots open to daily fee parking at 10am. So if you arrive between 8-10am on a weekday, you most likely won't find daily fee parking.

    Bike the Iron Horse trail. The trail starts just steps from the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station and streches 24 miles to Concord. You can bike from here to Walnut Creek BART in 18 miles. Read more

    So happy I can take my bike on BART... Much easier for me to get to/from home/work plus its great exercise. I pray this rule stays cause I think there will be a lot more commuters.

    If you're a regular commuter and use the daily $1 fee parking area, sign up for EZ rider instead of having to remember your parking # each time. It'll save time + it can be linked to a Clipper Card.

    When do you give up your seat to another rider? That's often been a topic of heated debate. A good rule of thumb: get up for those who are disabled, pregnant or elderly.

    Maybe there shouldn't be a waiting list with all the empty permit spaces. I am confused on the hold up. Either make those spaces fee or open up permit earlier.

    Beware that the morning commute between 7a and 9a departing here is usually full trains with limited standing room down the line!

    First train on the weekends is at 830a, and if you're going to sfo you'll have to change trains at 24th even if you're in a daily city train. Silly weekend schedule.

    Easy access to two airports and downtown San Francisco from here. Skip the traffic.

    Find a parking space mid-day? You can be 99.9999% sure the daily parking fee has already paid.

    The wide, orange gate that you can go in and out with is for bicycles, wheelchairs, strollers, and luggage ONLY — not for your average commuter.

    Download the BART rider app for your Android phone. Train times, map, find closest station. It was the best thing I ever did.

    Don't be like the woman who just stopped me in the lot and was aggravated she couldn't get a long-term permit at the station. Buy your airport parking permits in advance at bart.gov.

    Pay for parking machine is after you go through the fare gate. Remember your stall number.

    The Bart parking garage gets near perfect Verizon 4G signal at the top.

    Free parking in garages on weekends! You'll see signs for it AFTER you've paid for parking and walk into the station. The non-garage spots are not owned by BART...

    Hey ladies… stop it with applying makeup on the train. It's weird and creepy that you have some much makeup!

    If you arrive after 7:30am you're better off looking for parking on Dublin side. However, you can't use your BART card - need cash or credit card to pay.

    One of the nicer BART stations, but staff is hands off, lighting needs improvement, and you should stay away from the bathrooms.

    I often carpool into the City and then BART home - the new 'non-BART' payed parking on the Dublin now make this really easy.

    Watch out for morons who park in the red zone, thinking it's a passenger pick-up area.
