    Dallas Area Rapid Transit could soon expand its Pay to Park program to crack down on drivers finding ways around the fee.

    Currently, Plano's Parker Road and Northwest Plano stations charge $2 per day for people outside the 13-member service area, who don't pay taxes to DART, to park at the station. 

    Nearly half of those riders have been driving to nearby stations and parking for free, DART said.

    Now, DART will consider changing the Trinity Mills and George Bush stations to Pay to Park locations to discourage drivers from doing that.

    The planning committee will meet at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
