BART to Livermore Draft Environmental Impact Report Available for Public Review


BART to Livermore Draft Environmental Impact Report Available for Public Review

BART has issued a draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the proposed BART to Livermore Extension Project, and is now accepting public comments. Comments will be accepted beginning July 31. The deadline for receipt of comments is 5:00 pm, October 16, 2017. 

Proposed Project

The proposed project, being developed in partnership with the City of Livermore, consists of a 5.5 mile BART extension along I-580 to a new station near the Isabel Avenue/I-580 interchange. The project also includes new and modified bus services linking BART to Altamont Corridor Express (ACE) stations and activity centers in Livermore. The DEIR evaluates several alternatives, including a No Project alternative, a Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) alternative, an Express Bus/Bus Rapid Transit alternative, and an Enhanced Bus alternative. Both the proposed project and DMU alternative include storage and maintenance facilities for effective operations.
