Home > eBART – ANTHONY NACHOR
Opened on 25 May 2018, eBART (BART to eastern Contra Costa County) is BART’s newest addition to its regional rail network, linking Pittsburg/Bay Point and Antioch. This service mirrors BART’s service times, starting earlier than 4am and ending later than 1am most days of the week. It was built to ease congestion along CA Highway 4, linking Martinez with Antioch, especially during the weekday commute.

Number of minutes between stations are as follows:

  • Pittsburg/Bay Point transfer platform – Pittsburg Center: 3 minutes
  • Pittsburg Center – Antioch (Hillcrest Park-and-Ride): 7 minutes

Stations

The Pittsburg/Bay Point transfer platform is a separate station from the original Pittsburg/Bay Point station located roughly a mile west of the transfer platform. It was built to facilitate the break of gauge that takes place between conventional BART (which uses the Indian or Broad Gauge of 5′ 6″ [1,676mm] wide track) and eBART (which uses the Standard Gauge of 4′ 8.5″ [1,435mm] track).

All stations have island platforms since it runs along the median of CA Highway 4, allowing easy transfers between trains and simplified passenger throughput. All stations also use the same BART ticketing system and accept Clipper cards as form of payment, making the ride efficient.

Train Type and Interiors

eBART has eight (8) Stadler GTW diesel multiple unit (DMU) trains that can be configured as 1-, 2-, or 3-car trains depending on passenger demand. These can seat 104 passengers while permitting roughly 96 standees, amounting to 200 passengers per train car. During rush hour, up to 600 passengers can be accommodated in a 3-car consist. These trains have a maximum speed of 79mph, with maximum operational speed of 65mph

The following features can be found on each Stadler GTW train car:

  • Automated Voice and Digital Annunciator systems, calling out each of the train stations en route
  • Push buttons for opening doors (more than likely, all train doors will be operated by the train driver)
  • TV screens that show news, weather, and other pertinent information
  • Slightly harder seats than those found on the old BART trains (but softer than those on the Fleet of the Future trains)
  • Overhead baggage racks
  • A total of four wheelchair spaces (which can double as bike parking for commuters)
  • A total of 16 foldable seats that can provide additional space for passengers on walkers
