Castro valley BART station

Would it be safe to leave my truck parked overnight (Fri and/or Sat) at the BART station in Castro Valley?

That station seems safe even though I have never used it. I have parked overnight Fri to sun and it is free.

There is never guarantee when you park your car out in the streets or parking lots.

No one can guarantee a problem-free stay, but I have no reason to suspect that the Castro Valley station is a "bad" choice. I'm out that way occasionally and it seems like a perfectly decent suburban community. Ditto for both of the Dublin/Pleasanton stations.

I once parked for a long weekend at Coliseum station (admittedly with my old car) and had no problems. However, break-ins have been fairly common at the West Oakland station in the past. In other words, your mileage may vary.

Bad ones are the Coliseum, Hayward, Fruitvale and West Oakland parking. Don't leave valuables visible and make sure you can not open the trunk from the inside if your car does get broken into.
