This station is in BART District 1 and is represented by Gail Murray.[4]

A new parking garage opened at the station with 1,547 spaces on June 30, 2008.[5] The former station parking lot was converted into the Contra Costa Centre transit village.

An improved access path to the station better connecting it with the Iron Horse Regional Trail was proposed before the Walnut Creek city council on July 15, 2008.[6] The proposal gained support from BART and the local cycling organization.[6] A bridge over Treat Boulevard carrying the Iron Horse Regional Trail was completed on October 2, 2010.[7] The bridge cost $12 million.[8]

Despite opposition from the Pleasant Hill City Council, on October 11, 2010, the BART Board of Directors approved the station name change from "Pleasant Hill" to "Pleasant Hill/Contra Costa Centre" because of the station's proximity to the transit village.[9] The Contra Costa County Redevelopment Agency and AvalonBay Communities will cover the cost of changing the station signage as part of a planned $3 million upgrade.[10][11]
