Lafayette is a Bay Area Rapid Transit station in Lafayette, California. The station consists of one island platform in the center median of State Route 24 just south of the Lafayette Hillside Memorial.

Service at the station began on May 21, 1973.[2]

In 2011, BART was criticized for spending $2 million on a wheelchair ramp at the south entrance to the station without adding curb cuts or accessible parking there. However, the ramp was built to connect to a path to the Lafayette business district to the south.[3]
