DART considers charging riders to park in its lots

With parking lots full, and fuel costs going up, should DART charge riders to park in its lots?
Dallas Area Rapid Transit board members are asking the same question, though any decision is probably still months away, agency officials said.
"The board is talking about options. No plans. No vote. Just discussion," DART spokesman Morgan Lyons said.
Some board members, and riders, too, think that any parking fees should be aimed only at riders who live in cities that aren't members of DART. Many of the cities that are members have spent 25 years collecting a full cent of sales tax to fund the agency.
Still, talking about new fees is often just a first step to imposing them, and riders haven't waited to weigh in on the subject.
