BART 19th Street Modernization

Station upgrades increase customer experience, safety and economic opportunity


Key to BART’s 2014 Station Modernization Plan, the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) undertook a $36.7 million renovation/improvement project to expand capacity, improve access and modernize 19th Street/Oakland Station. Opened in 1972 as part of the first section of BART to open, the 19th street station has become one of the busiest in the system as a critical hub for commuters and a lifeline to the surrounding community. As one of the oldest stations in the system, the 19th street station was in need of upgrades and modernization.



TRC provided a range of program management and oversight solutions to support this complex project, including:

  • Program Management
  • Design Review
  • Construction Management/Inspection
  • Cost and Schedule Management
  • Technical Support
  • Systems Integration Management
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Coordination with Other Agencies
  • Claims /Dispute Resolution
  • Safety Oversight



The modernization has expanded station capacity, improved safety and access, upgraded lighting, and improved the flow of patrons at the 19th Street/Oakland BART Station. The enhanced customer experience provides an open concourse packed with aesthetic improvements including new energy-efficient LED lighting throughout the station, public art installation, a new north-end elevator, and the addition of bike racks and channels. Features also include the repair of terrazzo flooring and ceramic wall tiles in addition to the renovation and re-opening of the public restrooms on the concourse level.

The new energy efficient lighting, combined with new public art installations, have brought a glow to the blue brickwork of this iconic station. The improvements have not only changed the look of the station but also the feel.
