Planning is underway for the new Irvington BART Station, and the City of Fremont wants to involve the community. By visiting Fremont Open City Hall, the City’s online forum for citizen engagement, community members are being asked to answer the following question: How can the Irvington BART Station best serve you and the community? Responses received will be shared with City and BART officials.
The City is also encouraging the community to visit our Irvington BART webpage to get familiar with the project and complete an online survey. The survey takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete and will ensure that the plan reflects community input. The survey will remain open until January 1, 2018.
The future Irvington BART Station will be located in the Irvington District at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Osgood Road, approximately halfway between the existing Fremont BART Station and the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station. The Irvington BART Station was first studied as part of the Warm Springs extension in 1979 and was first approved by the BART Board in 1992. Most recently, the Irvington Station was planned to be constructed as part of the Warm Springs BART Extension. However, insufficient funding for the station delayed its development until Alameda County voters passed Measure BB in 2014, which specifically included funding for the station. The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) is funding and overseeing the project.
The City looks forward to working with community partners, businesses, and residents to plan the new station in Irvington.
