El Cerrito Plaza station Wikipedia
El Cerrito Plaza is one of two elevated BART stations located in El Cerrito, California. It primarily serves southern El Cerrito, northern Albany, and Kensington, along with nearby areas of Berkeley and Richmond. Outside of the station is the El Cerrito Plaza shopping center.
The station hosts the first BART trial of bikelink on-demand electronic bicycle lockers (traditional BART lockers are leased by the year, and are almost always fully booked). These are the same lockers used by C-TRAN of Vancouver, Washington, as funded by the US EPA.
Service at this station began on January 29, 1973.
In 1998, the Pacific East Mall opened and is within walking distance of the station via the trail to Point Isabel Regional Shoreline.
On February 3, 2008, UC Berkeley music professor Jorge Liderman committed suicide by jumping in front of an incoming Richmond-bound train at this station.
On June 8, 2009, Everret Carey, a four-month-old boy, died as a result of hyperthermia after being left unattended inside his father's car earlier in the day. The infant was discovered later in the afternoon by the mother, who notified BART police.
