The Castro Valley station has its platform located in the highway median above an underground concourse. The underground concourse is connected to the station entrance by an excavated tunnel that is as short as possible and opens onto a small plaza in the shape of an amphitheater. The entrance is conveniently located for access to AC Transit bus service and attended automobiles.

During the planning stage, the community of Castro Valley expressed a desire for a historical tone and cited a cherished veteran’s memorial building. Residents admitted that the town had lost most of its historic structures. The station’s designer, Robin Chiang, developed an architecture that suggested a history of building and rebuilding over a long time period. By adapting architectural treatments from different societies and eras into the contemporary components of a BART station he created a design that looked and felt familiar from opening day on.
