The station contains an open air bus station providing service to eleven SamTrans bus lines, an endof-the-line BART station with three tracks, an 800 car five story parking structure elevated above a BART train maintenance yard, a 900 foot long pedestrian bridge, and an open air parking lot for 400 cars. The designer, Robin Chiang, resolved to create a station that would impress patrons by being spacious and bright. Discussions about appearance and durability resulted in a hybrid modern parking garage that was deemed visually acceptable by the four jurisdictions while the station interior garnered universal praise. Construction cost for the station was approximately $70 million. Robin Chiang was design architect responsible for 100% of the station design. Work was completed on budget and the station opened on time in 1995.
