Emeryville is an Amtrak station in Emeryville, California that replaced the older Amtrak 16th Street Station in Oakland. The original Beaux-Arts Oakland 16th Street Station was declared unsafe due to unreinforced masonry after sustaining damage in the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989. Emeryville opened on August 13, 1993, although service continued at Oakland for another year.
The station is served by Amtrak California's Capitol Corridor and San Joaquins and Amtrak's Coast Starlight. It is also the western terminus of Amtrak's California Zephyr; there is no wye at Amtrak's new Oakland station near Jack London Square, so it would be necessary to back a long train along Oakland's Embarcadero to the Union Pacific yards.
Of the 74 California stations served by Amtrak, Emeryville was the fourth busiest in FY2012, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 1,607 passengers daily.
This Station is located in Alameda County.
