The Downtown Berkeley BART station is located underground as part of a three-stop below-ground section of the BART system. This is how the platform looked in 2010.

The sign over the new entrance made it clear that this was the entrance to Downtown Berkeley station and to BART. A gate could be lowered from inside the sign support to close the station in the middle of the night.

Just inside the new canopy were two escalators and one staircase giving access to the station for able bodied people. An elevator was also available but not shown here.

Three information signs were displayed alongside the station's entrance. One showed all the AC Transit stops that were near the BART station. Another showed a map of downtown Berkeley. And a third advertised local businesses.
