The new $525 million Antioch BART station, just minutes from Oakley, opened in May 2018 to rave reviews. The new service between the Pittsburg/Bay Point Station and Antioch is 10 miles long, adds two new stations, and provides much needed congestion relief on State Route 4.
The extension uses a different type of train called a Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU). These trains are state-of-the art, clean, and comfortable. They are environmentally friendly, meet the US Government’s strictest emissions standards, and use renewable diesel, an advanced biofuel produced from bio-based sources such as vegetable oil.
Residents of Grand Cypress Preserve will quickly realize one of the profoundly beautiful aspects about life in and around Oakley—they’re not far from the world, it just feels that way!
