BART to Antioch and Pittsburg


The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) is nearing completion of a new rail passenger service on approximately 10 miles of new track between the existing Pittsburg/Bay Point BART Station and Antioch at Hillcrest. The Pittsburg Center and Antioch stations are expected to open for service May 2018.

Here are some facts about the new stations and service:
