Concord station is a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in Concord, California. The station is located between the downtown business district to the west and residential neighborhoods to the east. Concord station has a single elevated island platform.


The station opened as the eastern terminus station of the BART system on May 21, 1973. The station remained a terminus until the line was extended to North Concord/Martinez station in December 1995 and to Pittsburg/Bay Point station a year later.[2]

A water feature at the station, installed by Stephen De Staebler in 1971 or 1972, was removed in the 1990s.[4]

Thirteen BART stations, including Concord, did not originally have faregates for passengers using the elevator. In 2020, BART started a project to add faregates to elevators at these stations. The new faregate in the lobby area of Concord station was installed in October 2020.[5]
