Oakland City Center/12th Street is an underground Bay Area Rapid Transit station located at 12th Street and Broadway next to the Oakland City Center in Downtown Oakland. This is an official transfer station along the BART system.

Like the 19th Street/Oakland station, the concourse mezzanine is on the first level down, an island platform and two main tracks for trains bound for Richmond and Pittsburg/Bay Point are on the second level down, and a side platform and one main track for trains bound for San Francisco and Fremont are on the third level down. At most times during the day, trains are timed to facilitate cross-platform transfers on the island platform.

The station was originally planned to have four main tracks and an island platform on each of the two levels, but budget constraints limited that idea.
