Oakland's new Jack London Square Amtrak Station was built to replace the condemned station destroyed during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. The terminal complex, with state-of-the-art parking, pedestrian bridge, boarding platforms, and a two-story station facility, provides connections between Amtrak and the Bay Area Rapid Transit system, the Oakland Airport, and ferry service connection to San Francisco.
