Updated January 16, 2017


Sign-ups for the Antioch waitlist has been rescheduled to Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 11am. 


The BART Board adopted the parking fees and fares at the December 7, 2017 board meeting.

BART is applying its existing distance-based fare structure to calculate fares for the new service.  For the 9.1 mile trip between Pittsburg Bay/Bay Point and Antioch Station, the Clipper fare will be $2.00 (starting Jan 1, 2018 there will be a $.50 surcharge on all paper ticket trips).  All BART discount programs will be applied to these fares.

The table below shows 2018 BART to Antioch sample fares using the adult Clipper card, a fare paid for with a paper ticket will be an additional 50 cents.

Some helpful points- you cannot transfer a monthly permit from one lot to the next, getting a monthly permit or joining the wait list does not impact your wait list status at other BART parking lots.

Project Background

The eBART Project represents the first phase of a plan to extend rail service into East County.  The eBART Project provides a cost-effective way to bring BART service to Antioch, and the rest of east Contra Costa County.  eBART will provide East County with frequent, reliable, and high quality rail service that will connect the growing region of east Contra Costa County with areas already served by BART.

BART is coming to east Contra Costa County.  Construction on this exciting project has commenced and is well underway with passenger service projected to start in 2018. 

The East Contra Costa BART Extension Project (eBART) will introduce a new rail passenger service comprising approximately 10 miles of new track between the existing Pittsburg/Bay Point BART Station and the City of Antioch.  Stations for the new service will be located in the City of Pittsburg and the City of Antioch.  These stations will use ticket vending machines and fare gates like the current BART system.  

The Project is being built in coordination with the Highway 4 widening project.  The combined projects represent approximately $1 Billion invested in the corridor.  The eBART Project will use independently propelled railcars known as Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) that will operate on standard gauge rail.  The tracks will be located in the median of State Route 4.

The eBART Project is supported by Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley, Brentwood, Contra Costa County, Tri Delta Transit, MTC, TRANSPLAN, ECCRFFA, CCTA, and Caltrans.  In April 2009, BART adopted the Project and construction began in early 2011.
