Vasco Road station
The Vasco Road station platform
|Location||575 South Vasco Road|
|Line(s)||UP Oakland Subdivision|
|Platforms||1 side platform|
|Opened||October 19, 1998|
The station mainly serves the workers of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory and the surrounding industrial and office parks in eastern Livermore in addition to commuters from Livermore headed to job centers in the Silicon Valley to the southwest.
The station is served by commuter Altamont Corridor Express (ACE) trains between San Jose Diridon Station and Stockton. Tri-Valley WHEELS lines 11, 16, and 20X  currently[when?] serve this location. In the future, express commuter buses (RTD, MAX, Manteca Transit, Tri-Delta Transit, Stanislaus Transit, and Tracer) currently serving the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station may stop at, be truncated to, or extend services to this station.
BART has approved an alignment for its Livermore extension to run along I-580 then tunnel underneath Isabel Avenue to the Livermore ACE station and then continue along the right-of-way to Vasco Road to serve as its final terminal. However, in July 2011, the Livermore City Council reversed its position in response to a petition requesting that the alignment stay within or nearby the Interstate 580 right-of-way, and now favors stations be built at the Interstate 580 interchanges with Isabel Avenue and Greenville Road.
