Only a 15 min walk to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), Concord Bart Station is 0.8 Miles away making Coral Court Apartments. BART connects the San Francisco Peninsula with Oakland, Berkeley, Fremont, Walnut Creek, Dublin/Pleasanton and other cities in the East Bay. For more than 40 years BART has provided fast, reliable transportation to downtown offices, shopping centers, tourist attractions, entertainment venues, universities and other destinations for Bay Area residents and visitors alike.
With BART breaking ground on renovations to its Concord station last February, the city is moving forward with infrastructure improvements to improve signage to and from BART and improve walking and biking in its downtown corridor. The city will restripe and install Class II bike lanes in downtown Concord, including Grant Street and Oakland Avenue, improving access for bikers to and from the BART station.
The upgrades to the downtown corridor will be installed within the next nine months. As part of the BART Plaza project, BART will improve signage for patrons leaving the Concord BART station so they can easily find their way downtown. Banners and new lights will also lead BART patrons toward Grant Street and Todos Santos Plaza.
New street signs will reflect the historical background of the city and will be placed in the core downtown area, according to Simpson. Simpson said Concord will improve pedestrian and bike paths along Grant Street and Meridian Park Boulevard. The city recently submitted applications for about $15M in grant funds for other road, bikeway and walkway improvements, primarily in the downtown.
The Downtown Corridors Plan will provide the framework for improvements along Oak, Grant and Salvio streets, creating more pedestrian-friendly access for residents, shoppers, businesses and employees. The plan is awaiting grant approvals.
