Its a start. Too bad they dont just extend BART itself out that way. Future growth expected that area alone I think warrants that.

The money will be used to enlarge the Highway 4 median in a section of Antioch so it is wide enough to accommodate the eBART line. EBART will use diesel trains that are narrower and less expensive than the electric BART trains.

Some construction began in October on a 10-mile section of eBART, which is expected to open in 2015. EBART will stretch from the existing Bay Point-Pittsburg BART station to a new station at Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch, with an intermediate station on Railroad Avenue in Pittsburg.

The Livermore extension is going to be the standard heavy-rail BART cars.

I don't support these ebart extensions. I saw a stat somewhere that off-peak hours most BART trips start and end in Oakland. We need more infill, so BART can make more money all day. Not adding more commuters to the already packed commute hour trains.
