Commuters catching Tri Delta Transit buses at the current Hillcrest Park & Ride on a typical weekday afternoon
Big changes are coming up for the Hillcrest Park & Ride lot located in Antioch at the corner of Hillcrest Avenue and Sunset Drive. Starting Sunday, February 16, 2014, commuters will be parking a bit further up on Sunset Drive on Lot A of the upcoming eBART station.
The new parking lot will feature an additional 94 spaces for commuters. The bus loading area will also be relocated to an area adjacent to the future eBART station. Tri Delta Transit and other transit operators are recommending that you allow additional time to catch your bus. In anticipation of some confusion to the new changes, signs and ambassadors will be on site Tuesday, February 18th to help commuters.
511 Contra Costa is excited to see that the new Hillcrest Park & Ride lot is almost ready to open to the public. It looks like finishing touches are being put into place when staff stopped by for a preview.
By the end of 2017, all 1,000 spaces of BART’s Antioch (eBART) Station parking lot will be available for use for drivers who use Tri Delta Transit, eBART and other local public transit systems. And what will happen to the current parking lot? The old Hillcrest Park and Ride will be demolished to clear space for freeway onramps and offramps.
