Track work may cause weekend delays

Pittsburg/Bay Point Line affected

Beginning on Saturday, February 20, 2010, we will need to run northbound Pittsburg/Bay Point line trains on a single track due to ongoing weekend track work for the Central Contra Costa Crossover Project. Single tracking will take place on weekends only and we expect to end this work in mid-May. Single tracking trains may result in slight delays of up to 10 to 15 minutes on weekend trains going toward Pittsburg/Bay Point Station.

We recommend that you adjust your travel plans accordingly to take the potential delays into account.

The Central Contra Costa Crossover Project will add two new crossover tracks between Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek stations. Not only will these crossover tracks mean reduced delays on the Pittsburg/Bay Point line, they will also give us the flexibility to run more trains between Pleasant Hill and San Francisco, thus providing more seating during the peak commutes.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
