    A major overhaul is coming to the Walnut Creek BART Station.

    The transportation agency's East Bay station will soon start construction on a transit village that will result in the creation of a new parking garage, apartments, shops, restaurants and public plazas, according to BART.

    The parking garage project, which will house more than 900 spots, will add 100 more stalls compared to the station's current capacity, according to BART. There will not be a reduction in the current number of parking spots during construction.
