BART’s Warm Springs/South Fremont Extension opened for service on Saturday, March 25, 2017. The 5.4-mile extension connects the existing Fremont Station to the new Warm Springs/South Fremont Station. Bike East Bay worked with Fremont to upgrade bike connections on Fremont Blvd, Grimmer Blvd and Warm Springs Blvd. You’ll enjoy wider, buffered bike lanes with green paint.
The new station includes ample bike parking, both U-racks inside and outside of paid areas and lockers, bike stair channels and plenty of green bike lanes leading to and within the new station.
“This will be history in the making,” said BART Director Tom Blalock, who serves Fremont and has been a leader in making the extension a reality. “This will bring BART service to the residents of fast growing south Fremont. They’ll have a reliable, environmentally-responsible alternative to driving on the sometime nightmarish Nimitz Freeway.”
The Warm Springs Extension also paves the way for BART to Silicon Valley, a Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority project that’s underway and is expected to open for service to Berryessa neighborhood later this year.
One day before beginning service, BART hosted an Opening Celebration. At 10 until noon on Friday March 24, 2017, BART will welcome neighbors, elected leaders and anyone interested in the new station. On the day of the celebration, free shuttles will run from Fremont Station to the new station every 15-20 minutes from 8:45 am to 1 pm.
The station is located at 45193 Warm Springs Blvd.
