BART could receive an extra $54,000 a year by opening up some parking spots at Millbrae Station for Google employees.
Google has made a request to reserve some parking spaces for its employees at the Peninsula BART station. Under a recommended proposal, the transit agency could set aside 30 spaces for Google, a deal that would generate $4,500 monthly for BART. At that rate, the agency would take in over $50,000 annually. Google has the option to renew the contract for up to five years, which would bring in $270,000 to BART.
Since only about 80 percent of Millbrae’s spots are regularly used, BART staff said that the deal could be expanded to include 60 spots, if there are no complications from the original pact.
BART’s Board of Directors will vote on the proposal at its meeting on Thursday.
