Berryessa is a VTA Light Rail Station in the middle of Capital Avenue with two completely offset platforms so trains stop at the far side (after crossing the intersection) of Ohlone Drive and this intersection also provides the only legal entrance to each platform although the emergency exit end doesn't have a proper fence. The name of the station comes from Berryessa Road that is the next block southeast of this intersection. The platforms each have a single tan colored canopy structure with a maroon roof. The skylights of these structures are painted glass with a design based on Wild Peony plants by Jean Whitesavage and Nick Lyle. There are also pink railings that look like Manzanita leaves by the same artists. The floor of the platform has decorative designs and colors by Victor Zaballa.
