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 the station is the El Cerrito Plaza shopping center.

Service at this station began on January 29, 1973.[3]

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.[4]

Bike lockers outside the station

The station hosts the first BART trial of bikelink on-demand electronic bicycle lockers. These are the same lockers used by C-TRAN of Vancouver, Washington, as funded by the US EPA.
