Berryessa/North San José is a future Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station serving the Berryessa District in San Jose, California. Previously known as Berryessa Station, it was renamed in 2017 to "Berryessa/​North San José."[3][4] It is scheduled to open by the end of 2019.[5]

It will be the first BART station ever built in San Jose, and service will terminate here pending completion of the downtown San Jose subway (the last phase of the Silicon Valley BART extension).[6] Due to a shortage of available rolling stock, it will initially be served by only one line at any one time. A second line will be added later, during peak hours.[7][2]

History[edit]

The $2.3-billion extension has two stations, and broke ground in 2012 with completion initially expected in 2016 but delayed several times.[8] VTA received a $900 million grant for federal funding for the $2.3-billion Silicon Valley Extension in 2012.[9]

Station layout[edit]

The 52-acre (21 ha) station will have an elevated island platform, a seven-story parking structure with 1,200 spaces, and a 10-bay bus transit center.[10][11][12] The site is adjacent to the San Jose Flea Market.
