Awesome, so they won't ticket me on Friday night even though my permit will say Saturday? I did set the parking to start on Saturday as a trial run through the website and it only charged me $35 (for Mon-Fri).

I'm just paranoid that they'll start enforcing it on Friday night and I'll get a ticket for not having a permit that starts Friday.

Nope. All parking at Bart is free from 15:00 friday until 0400 Monday.
It encourages the drunks to take the train and leave the car.

Even when not going to the airport, or having an airport permit I've left a car over night for various reasons.

And even if you're arriving before 3pm on Friday, you can simply pay the day parking rate ($2/day) at the station to cover Friday, then have your airport parking start on either Saturday or Monday.

The above works for all days, not just weekends. If you're arriving after 3pm you do not need to pay for that day as fees are only enforced between 4am and 3pm. If you arrive before 3pm, you can pay $2 for the first day.

Excellent. Thanks; you've given me a lot of peace of mind!
