Irvington (BART station)
The Warm Springs extension is being built through the Irvington District, which is located between the Fremont and Warm Springs stations. A station in Irvington was originally planned as part of this extension; however, funding could not be secured and it is only being partially developed until the funds can be put together.
The city of Fremont had planned to finance the 140 million dollar station through redevelopment agency bonds in 2009, however due to governor Jerry Brown's proposed elimination this plan was put on hold. In 2011 it became clear that redevelopment was off the table when the California State Legislature voted cutting the agency down. At this point the city council decided to go ahead with building the station by 2015, citing improving interest rates.
AC Transit will provide bus service to this station.
