Pleasant Hill BART Bike Station – Secure Indoor Parking
In January 2018, BART opened its first Bike Station in Contra Costa County. Located directly across from the Pleasant Hill/Contra Costa Centre BART station’s main entrance, the facility provides 24-hour access secure bike parking for up to 215 bikes as well as retail sales & bike repairs during staffed hours.
Staff is on-site from 7am-11am each weekday. Access to the secure bike parking area requires a BikeLink card, which can be purchased at the Bike Station. More information is available on the BART Bike Station webpage.
