Project Details

Station Modernization Plan

BART completed the 19th St./Oakland Station Plan in 2014. The goal of the plan is to develop a long-term vision to upgrade and modernize the station's function, safety, capacity, sustainability, and appearance, as well as to improve the overall customer experience.  To view the 19th St./Oakland Station Modernization Plan, please click here


Passenger input

BART conducted in-station events and an online survey to get input on the Station Modernization Plan in June 2014. Over 629 people provided feedback. 

The following were rated as the most important improvements by survey participants:

  • Maintain and upgrade general infrastructure functionality – e.g. ensure that escalators/elevators work, repair elevator leaks, increase storage for cleaning equipment, replace worn out hardware (75% surveyed rated as "important" or "extremely important")
  • Improve general station cleanliness and upkeep – e.g. repaint ceilings and repairing floors, repair damaged bricks (68% surveyed rated as "important" or "extremely important")
  • Upgrade the lighting within the station, including more energy efficient lighting (61% surveyed rated as "important" or "extremely important")
