Carpool commuters traveling by BART will have a new option for securing parking at the Dublin/Pleasanton station by the end of January. In a joint effort between BART, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Scoop Technologies, beginning next Monday, riders who carpool to the station and use the Scoop cellphone app will be guaranteed parking spots until 10 a.m. as part of a pilot program to better utilize parking spaces.
Commuters who wish to use the service can download the Scoop application and schedule a ride to the station by 9 p.m. the night before for morning service, or by noon for evening service.
Scoop will then notify users shortly after the deadline if they have found a match with one their 55,000 customers.
Users can utilize a variety of enhancements with the app, including paying for or receiving money for the carpool, paying for BART parking and indicating whether or not their vehicle is wheelchair-accessible.
More information about the pilot program can be found at rideshare.511.org.
