Dublin / Pleasanton

5801 Owens Dr, Pleasanton, CA 94588

Dublin / Pleasanton is a Rapid Transit Station at the Dublin and Pleasanton border with the Bay Area. The Dublin / Pleasanton–Daly City line’s eastern end is a major bus terminal operated by six suppliers. 

The station is an island platform situated in the elevated Interstate 580’s middle median. Under the platform is a fare lobby; the station is connected to bus bays, parking lots, a parking garage and surrounding development by a pedestrian and vehicle underpass. The Iron Horse Regional Trail connects to both the station’s north and south sides. Station service started on May 10, 1997. In the late 1980s, original plans called for a West Dublin station to be added later, with an East Dublin station near the Hacienda Business Park; however, the decision was reversed by the early 1990s. During the planning to distinguish it from the proposed West Dublin / Pleasanton station, the station was known as East Dublin / Pleasanton. Since its inception, it has been known simply as Dublin / Pleasanton. The station features a “wave” design motif, most notably in the titanium canopy roof over the passenger platform, which has a five-curve profile intended to echo both the shape of Dublin’s nearby hills and reflect the sound waves created by BART’s electric drive. Original construction was completed in 2006 by an adjacent transit-oriented project on the station’s Dublin side.[5 ] The plan included a 1,513-space BART parking garage which opened on May 23, 2008.[3 ] According to its designers, “new design treatments … take a look away from height and size,” but urban design critic John King of San Francisco Chronicle dismissed the re-construction. Building a second 665-space garage was controversial, planned by BART in 2002. A $37.1 million proposal was unveiled in February 2017; local officials were in support of the garage–recognizing that the existing car park is full on weekdays by 7:45 a.m. –but it was rejected by the BART Board due to cost issues and a 2016 BART policy to prioritize non-auto access to stations. Alternatively, the Board approved a “hybrid” plan of $17.2 million that included limiting existing parking, expanding bus service and connections to Iron Horse Regional Trail, and implementing an electronic parking system.
