West Oakland is a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station serving the West Oakland neighborhood in Oakland, California, Untied States. It has two elevated side platforms, and is located near the eastern end of the Transbay Tube. All lines except the Richmond-Fremont line stop at this station.

This station was called Oakland West until 1982; it opened in September 1974 with the commencement of service through the Transbay Tube. Since early 2014, parking commuters at this station pay $6 per day on the weekdays. This was implemented to raise revenue, to bring parking costs at the station in line with parking at other local garages, and to ensure that parking at the stations was going to be used for BART patrons only, parking spaces would have had to be 'validated' inside the BART paid area.

In addition to BART, the station serves BoltBus and Megabus, which provide intercity bus service to the Patsaouras Transit Plaza at Los Angeles Union Station in Los Angeles, as well as the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center in Anaheim, California.[3][4]
