Pittsburg/Bay Point is a Bay Area Rapid Transit station in Pittsburg, California, United States, adjacent to the community of Bay Point. It serves northern and eastern Contra Costa County, as well as the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Passengers transfer between the light and heavy rail portions of the Antioch–SFO/Millbrae line at a separate transfer platform east of the main station.
The station opened on December 7, 1996. Service was cut back to North Concord/Martinez station from March 16-21, 2016 (and at off-peak times until April 2) after electrical issues between the stations damaged a number of trains.
BART began service on the eBART line between Pittsburg/Bay Point and Antioch station on May 26, 2018. Unlike the rest of the BART system, eBART uses small self-propelled Diesel multiple unit (DMU) railcars, thus requiring a transfer between the two lines. A second island platform (with one track for eBART and one for conventional BART trains) was constructed 0.6 miles (0.97 km) to the east of Pittsburg/Bay Point station, providing a cross-platform interchange. The transfer platform does not have street access, so passengers must ride a mainline BART train between the two platforms.
