Of the 74 California stations served by Amtrak, Oakland was the tenth-busiest in FY2012, boarding or de-training an average of about 1,142 passengers daily.[4]



The station opened on May 22, 1995 as a replacement for 16th Street Station, which had been severely damaged in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. A building next to the old station was used as the rail station until August 5, 1994.[5] Southern Pacific's downtown station on the north side of 1st Street between Franklin Street and Broadway was a passenger stop until 1960.

The station is owned by the Port of Oakland; the tracks along 1st Street are owned by Union Pacific Railroad.[6]
