Oakland City is an embankment rail station on the Red and Gold lines of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail system. It has one island platform between two tracks. It was opened on December 15, 1984. For both entrances to this station, you have to go through the fare gates and an underground passageway to go up to the platform. On the Lee St. entrance (on the west side of the station), you go through fare gates, then the passageway goes under the street. From the other side, the passageway goes under the street and freight line tracks. It has an at grade style though its nature is elevated, similar to many of the stations on the East-West line. This station mainly serves Oakland City, Sylvan Hills and Capitol View neighborhoods in Atlanta.

Bus service is provided at this station to Barge Road Park & Ride, South Fulton Medical Center, Sylvan Hills, and Greenbriar Mall.
