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, it was renamed in 2017 to "Berryessa/​North San José."[3][4]

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).[5] As of October 2019, the station is tentatively planned to open in 2020.[1][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.[6] VTA received a $900 million grant for federal funding for the $2.3-billion Silicon Valley Extension in 2012.[7]

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.[8][9][10] The site is adjacent to the San Jose Flea Market.
