Renovations begin at Downtown Berkeley Station August 2016

We will begin renovations to the plaza above the Downtown Berkeley BART Station late August, 2016. 

The renovations will improve access to other modes of travel, redo station entrances, improve bus shelters, provide new plaza paving, lighting and landscaping. Once completed, the plaza will provide open space for events and activities. New wayfinding signs and electronic displays with real-time BART and bus arrival information, throughout the station and plaza, will be added.

The work, which should be completed in the fall of 2017, will require that we temporarily close some of the station entrances. There will always be open entrances. Bus and shuttle stops and the taxi stand will need to be relocated during the work. There will be signs and maps to direct customers to the temporary locations of these services.

The Secondary plaza entrance along Allston and Shattuck Ave will be the first to close this summer. It will remain closed through the winter of 2017. The Main entrance to the station will close after the Secondary plaza entrance reopens and will remain closed until Summer of 2017.  Click here for a map.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
