North Berkeley is an underground Bay Area Rapid Transit station located on Sacramento Street in Berkeley, California. The station is bounded by Virginia, Sacramento, Delaware, and Acton Streets to the north, east, south, and west, respectively.
The main station entrance sits within a circular building at the center of a parking lot, while an elevator between the surface and the platform is located at the parking lot's Sacramento Street edge. (The elevator has a dedicated turnstile; however, an Addfare machine, which is used to add funds to an already-printed BART ticket, is only available inside the main station entrance.)
The site was originally an open area across which the Key System constructed its Westbrae streetcar line, subsequently given the letter designation "G". The tracks ran diagonally across the property in virtually the same alignment as today's underground BART tracks. Homes began to be constructed along the periphery of the site, and after the G-Westbrae line was closed in 1941, filled in most of the rest of the it. All of these were demolished in the 1960s to make way for the construction of the North Berkeley Station.
