SPUR Comments on Berryessa BART Parking Garage Project Design

Letter recommending specific design recommendations for the Berryessa BART parking garage before design-build contract is awarded
Policy Letter
February 21, 2014

The Berryessa BART Station is the first BART station to be built in San Jose, which is itself the largest city in the Bay Area. It is SPUR’s hope that this station will be designed to encourage as many people as possible to walk, bike and/or take transit to the station, as well as to become a memorable, multi-functional place in its own right. Since the design-build contract for the garages at both Milpitas and Berryessa is about to be awarded, we would like to offer a few recommendations on the design of the Berryessa garage itself.
