12th Street Oakland City Center

12th Street Oakland City Center[2] is an underground Bay Area Rapid Transit station located at the intersection of 12th Street and Broadway next to the Oakland City Center in Downtown Oakland. It used to be a northbound transfer station along the BART system, until that role was switched to 19th Street station on September 13, 2010.[3] It is the busiest BART station that is not in San Francisco, and is the 5th busiest BART station overall.[1]

Like the 19th Street station, the concourse mezzanine is on the first level downstairs, an island platform and two main tracks for Northbound trains (bound for Richmond and Pittsburg/Bay Point) are on the second level down, and a side platform and one main track for southbound trains (bound for San Francisco, SFO, Millbrae, and Fremont) are on the third level downstairs.
