BART will temporarily close the Dublin/Pleasanton Station August 18th and 19th as part of the construction process for a new station and transit village in West Dublin/Pleasanton. Passengers should use the Castro Valley Station to ride BART during the closures.
STATION CLOSURE DATES & TIMES
BART will close the Dublin/Pleasanton Station on the following dates:
- Saturday, August 18, 6 a.m. - 1 p.m.
- Sunday, August 19, 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
FREE SHUTTLE SERVICE
During the temporary closures BART will provide a free shuttle bus to transport passengers between Dublin/Pleasanton and Castro Valley stations from the start of service until 1 p.m.
WHY THE CLOSURE?
The yet-to-be-named new station at West Dublin/Pleasanton will be between Castro Valley and Dublin/Pleasanton stations and straddle the median of I-580 between I-680 and the San Ramon Road/Foothill Road exits.
The trackway between the Castro Valley and Dublin/Pleasanton stations needs to be free of train traffic so construction crews that are building the new station can have access to the train tracks.
This station will be the first in the BART system to be built with "smart growth" already incorporated into the design. The smart growth around the new station will include 1,200 parking spaces, 210 housing units, office space and a hotel. We anticipate opening the station in 2009.
We appreciate your patience with these service changes and we thank you for riding BART.
