BART to break ground at site of new station in Dublin/Pleasanton

It will be first station added since 2003

BART and its project partners will make history Friday, September 29th when they break ground at the site of the new BART station in Dublin/Pleasanton. The new station, when completed, will allow passengers to board BART in the middle of the current 10-mile gap between Castro Valley and Dublin/Pleasanton stations.

The station is a result of a public private partnership that brings together the transit district, city governments and private developers. The station will be located in the median of I-580. The surrounding area will feature housing, retail stores, office space and a hotel.

Two celebrations will mark the beginning of this ambitious project. The first event begins at 9:30 a.m. on the Dublin side of the station followed at 11 a.m. with an event on the Pleasanton side.
