The dynamic city of Pittsburg is positioned in Northern California’s beautiful East Bay Area. Its enviable location places it within a close distance of several big-market cities and a vast transportation network of roadways, rail lines and airports.
California State Route 4 offers an advantageous connection to Interstate 680 approximately 12 miles west of town. Commuters and tourists searching for a cost-effective and convenient way to travel are afforded the services of two public transit options. Tri Delta Transit operates 14 local bus routes during the week and three on weekends and holidays, which link riders with employment centers, schools, parks, shopping centers and Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) terminals. The Pittsburg/Bay Point BART terminal station operates along the yellow line – a route that begins in Pittsburg and ends at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
Caltrans is currently widening Highway 4 from Pittsburg east to Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch. With the addition of eBart in 2015, there will be more commute options available.
SFO is one of several major airports within reach of the Pittsburg community. Other commercial airports in the region include Oakland International Airport (OAK), San Jose International Airport (SJC) and Sacramento International Airport (SMF). General and corporate aviation needs are met by Contra Costa County Airports, which operates Buchanan Field in nearby Concord, as well as Byron Airport, located approximately 24 miles southeast of town.
