Long Description:
"Downtown Berkeley is a Bay Area Rapid Transit station located on Shattuck Avenue, between Allston Way and Addison Street in Downtown Berkeley, California. Signs in the station itself read simply Berkeley, per se the original name of the station. BART officials renamed it in the mid-1990s, presumably to avoid confusion with North Berkeley and Ashby stations, both of which are also located in the City of Berkeley.

The station consists of a mezzanine level and an underground island platform beneath it. The escalators leading to the entrance at Shattuck Avenue and Center Street are topped by a rotunda that covers passengers entering and leaving the station from inclement weather.

Downtown Berkeley is the second-busiest BART station outside of San Francisco, with 11,814 weekday average exits in Fiscal Year 2008. The only station outside of San Francisco with more traffic is 12th Street/Oakland City Center.

The station is popular both with students of UC Berkeley who use it to commute to the university and with non-student residents of Berkeley, many of whom commute to job centers in San Francisco and other Bay Area destinations. Additionally, it is used by patrons of events taking place at the University, such as concerts or lectures, and especially football games and other athletic events, including those sponsored by the MyBART service."
