Pittsburg and MacArthur Update

img_2634Kiran Goldman and I have researched and reported at the Pittsburg and MacArthur BART stations over the last five weeks. We have reported at the BART stations and their BARThoods. In the process, we learned that both stations are in different phases of planning a transit village to better serve the community around those BARThoods. Pittsburg, a BARThood where residents say surrounding towns like Walnut Creek better serve their daily needs, see the Transit Village as an opportunity to enhance their community. Around the MacArthur BARThood, a transit village would serve the young educated commuters who are increasingly moving into the neighborhood, however, old-time businesses would likely be displaced. –Elizabeth Shemaria
