Major escalator repair at 12th Street/Oakland City Center Station

On Thursday, May 2, we had to remove from service the platform-level escalator for 12th Street Station that is near entrance at the corner of 14th and Broadway for a major repair. 

The escalator has experienced a failure of one of the primary drive components. We will need to completely dismantle the upper section of the escalator to reach the component.

For the most up-to-date information about this escalator or any others, you can check escalator status at http://www.bart.gov/stations/escalators.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
