We apologize for the long delay in returning the north entrance escalator back to service. North Berkeley is a deep station and we realize just how important working escalators are to you.
We had to put the north entrance escalator out of service to repair broken gears. The new gears are being custom-made by an offsite manufacturer and we are still awaiting delivery. We expect to have the escalator back in service by mid-to-late-August. In the meantime, we will operate the remaining escalator at this station to travel in the peak commute direction (down in the mornings and up in the afternoons). The station has an elevator that is available for your use as well.
