19th Street Oakland is a stop located in the underground subway beneath Broadway in Downtown Oakland. The station has three tracks on two levels. Originally the designs called for 4 tracks to keep trains on the Fremont-Richmond Line separated from those on the San Francisco to Concord Line but this design was cut on the lower level so trains for Fremont and San Francisco all share one track with one island platform on the lower level. On the upper level is an island platform for the two southbound tracks, one used by Pittsburg/Bay Point trains and the other for Richmond-bound trains. On top of all this is a full length mezzanine with some gaps above the upper level platform giving it a high ceiling in places. The color pallet of the station is a dark blue with dark blue pillars along the platforms and surrounding the escalators and staircases. There are fragments of blue lines painted on the platform walls. There are a couple of sets of escalators directly from the lower level bypassing a landing at the middle island platform, straight to the upper level mezzanine. The elevator is at the southern end of the station. From the upper mezzanine there are three separate fare control areas, all exits are via combined up escalators/street stairs, up to the middle of the sidewalk, except for the upper elevator landing. At the northern end of the station these are at NE and SW corners of 20th Street and Broadway. Next is one mid-block on the east side of the street just north of 19th Street. There is then one at the SE corner of 19th Street and Broadway followed by a final one on the east side of Broadway between 19th Street and 17th Street (there isn't an 18th Street). This is also where the street elevator is inside 1746-1750 Broadway.
