Blog Post Image

eBART is scheduled to open in East Contra Costa County on Saturday, May 26, 2018 with a community ribbon-cutting celebration on Friday, May 25th at 11 a.m. at the new Antioch Station. The type of train used at this extension is called a Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU).- they use renewable diesel from hydrogenated vegetable oil.  These trains are state-of-the art, clean, comfortable and environmentally friendly! The DMUs run on their own tracks in the median of State Route 4 and connect with the existing BART system. Riders only need to exit one train and walk across the platform to board the other train- simple as that! Get your Clipper card to better streamline your commute.  eBART will provide much needed relief to the traffic congested State Route 4. For more detailed information and updates visit eBART Extension
