. From I-680 South, just North of the SR-24 interchange, exit Ygnacio Valley Road East, and enter the BART parking lot on your left.

How to find the charging station location once you have found the site:
Parking spots numbered 2086 and2087. These spots are next to, but not in, the yellow reserved section.
The one pedestal-mounted TAL charger is in the outdoor parking lot right on Ygnacio Valley Road, not in the parking structure. There are also three obsolete MagneChargers there, with blue or purple covers. The Avcon charging station is immediately to the left of the SPI.
Look for the real TAL small-paddle charger. There older MagneChargers here as well.
Two EV parking spots, one SPI & one AVC. All OC conductive outlets are turned OFF.
