Location and Transportation

Location and Transportation

Location is one of Antioch’s most significant assets. The city is positioned at the meeting point of the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers in eastern Contra Costa County, approximately 45 miles from San Francisco and 65 miles from Sacramento.

Antioch’s position in the outlying San Francisco Bay Area places it within reach of numerous transportation outlets. State Route 4 (California Delta Highway improvements) runs east to west through the heart of the community, connecting with State Route 160 on its eastern edge. Tri Delta Transit serves as eastern Contra Costa County’s main public transit service, offering several daily bus routes and dial-a-ride service in Antioch and the surrounding area. Commuters also utilize the services of AC Transit, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Amtrak regional rail.

The city’s transportation options will be expanding in the near future with the establishment of the East Contra Costa BART extension (eBART) near the Hillcrest Ave. exit off State Route 4. This project will extend the BART rail system an additional 10 miles from the current Pittsburg/Bay Point stop into Antioch at the forthcoming Hillcrest Avenue Station, which will offer an easier connection to destinations across the East Bay. Construction on eBART began in 2011; service is scheduled to begin in 2016.
