BART El Cerrito Del Norte Station
AE3 was the Prime Architect for the BART El Cerrito del Norte Station Modernization. Our scope of work included expanding the paid area to the south with new fare gates, station agent booth and ticket vending machines (TVMs). Within the existing station area, new energy efficient LED lighting, clean metal soffit panels and new elevators were installed. Existing bus shelters, seating and miscellaneous equipment was removed to improve the passenger experience by simplifying circulation, opening up sight lines, and improving waiting areas.
Bike racks and lockers were moved adjacent to the Ohlone Greenway where bicycle and pedestrian circulation routes will be enhanced. Design alternatives included creating a pedestrian priority zone along the intermodal roadway, improving wayfinding and signage, adding modern restrooms and replacing the existing escalators.
