West Oakland

West Oakland is a Bay Area Rapid Transit station located in the neighborhood of West Oakland in Oakland. It has two elevated side platforms, and is located near the eastern end of the Transbay Tube. This is the last stop before entering the Transbay Tube into San Francisco, and all trains except those of the Richmond - Fremont line pass through this station. In late 2005 a parking program was implemented in which parking commuters at this station would have to pay $5 per day. This was implemented to raise revenues for BART, 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.

The station was originally named Oakland West until 1982.
