The Lake Merritt Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station is located in Downtown Oakland on Madison Street near Chinatown, Laney College, The Oakland Museum of California, and the iconic Lake Merritt. This station consists of an island platform.
Service at this station began on September 11, 1972.
The BART headquarters was located in a dedicated six-story office building constructed concurrently on top of the station; many years later, due to potential risk of earthquake, the headquarters was moved away from the station to leased space on the first floor of the Kaiser Center, 0.75 miles away (1,200 m). A relatively careful dismantling of the former headquarters building (so as not to impact transit operations) was completed in 2010.
