Bay Area Rapid Transit recently opened its Dublin/Pleasanton Station along the I-580/I-680 corridor in the East Bay.

The grand opening of BART�s 44th station adds to the system 1,200 new parking spots, more racks for bicyclists and eventually a transit village.

Construction on the $106-million, design-build project was led by Jones Lang LaSalle/Ampelon Development, serving as master developers; Shimmick Construction, the station and pedestrian bridge developer; and Overaa Construction, which developed the garage.

Windstar Communities and Cornerstone Real Estate Advisors funded more than $21 million for the project, says BART. Alameda County Surplus, the cities of Dublin and Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley Transportation Commission also contributed $8 million toward the station.

The West Dublin/Pleasanton Station breaks up what had been the longest stretch of tracks between two stations, 10 mi from Castro Valley to Dublin/Pleasanton.
