West Dublin/Pleasanton is a BART station on the Dublin/Pleasanton–Daly City line, located in the median of I-580, just west of I-680. This station was an infill station that began revenue service almost 14 years after the rest of this portion of the Dublin/Pleasanton–Daly City line, opening on Saturday, February 19, 2011 with a ceremony taking place the day before.[2][3]

The station was originally planned to enter into service as part of the original extension to Dublin/Pleasanton, which entered service in 1997. As a result, the station's foundation, along with some communication and train control facilities, already existed on-site.

Construction on the station began on October 29, 2006, and was slated to be complete in 2009,[4] but possible faulty construction delayed its opening until 2011.[2][5]

Its cost was estimated at $106 million,[2] with funding coming from a unique public-private partnership and the proceeds of planned transit-oriented development (TOD) on adjacent BART-owned property.

This is BART's 44th station and is only the second infill station to be built in the system, the other being Embarcadero Station, which opened in 1976.[6]

Transit connections

Bus service is provided by WHEELS, including a line providing express service to the Pleasanton ACE station,[7] and Tri-Valley Rapid (a Bus rapid transit line),[8] using techniques such as signal prioritization and queue-jump lanes to provide faster bus service connecting Stoneridge Mall, Lawrence Livermore/Sandia Laboratories, and BART.
