Concord Station Modernization

While the Plaza improvements were completed in 2018, State transportation improvement program (STIP) and Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) funds were awarded for additional station modernization elements at Concord station. They include installing a new elevator in the paid area, reconfiguring the fare gates and vending machines, relocating the station agent booth, and improving lighting, signage and wayfinding. Design work is in process and is expected to be completed by the end of 2021 with a construction timeframe to be determined based on additional funding availability. BART hopes to conduct in-station engagement with customers once design is complete. 

Concord Plaza Improvements

In 2018, BART completed construction on several improvements at Concord station, following the 2016 Concord Station Modernization Plan and supporting the City of Concord's Downtown Specific Plan:

  • Reconfiguration of the west side plaza and parking lot to provide an improved, direct pedestrian and bicycle connection between the BART Station and Todos Santos Plaza in Downtown Concord;

  • New benches, landscaping, trees, trash receptacles, pedestrian lighting, and wayfinding in the west side plaza; and

  • Upgraded pedestrian crosswalks, pathways, and bicycle route striping on both sides of the station.

Concord Station Modernization Plan

The 2016 Concord Station Modernization Plan is a long-term vision for improvements to enhance accessibility, safety, capacity, state of good repair, appearance, and sustainability at Concord Station. The plan was done in partnership with the City of Concord assessing needs, collecting custom feedback, identifying transformative opportunities, and developing a preferred set of improvements that can be phased in over time as funding becomes available.
