Pittsburg Center,[2] also referred to as Railroad Avenue or simply Pittsburg, is a future Bay Area Rapid Transit station on the planned eBART light rail line.[3] It will be located at the Railroad Avenue overpass of Highway 4 in Pittsburg, California. Funding for the station was secured in early 2015; construction commenced on July 27, 2015,[4] with an expected opening date with the rest of the eBART line in 2018.[1]

The station will serve the downtown area of Pittsburg about 1 mile (1.6 km) away via connecting buses provided by Tri Delta Transit.
