Casey and Jeff walk from BART to Howard Terminal

Take a stroll with ABC-7’s Casey Pratt and our Jeff August as they take the lunch hour to walk from the 12th Street City Center BART station to Howard Terminal. Merry Christmas.

  1. West Oakland station is ever so slightly closer. I’m glad they compared the walk from the main A’s/Oracle plaza to the BART station and time how long that takes.

  2. The distance from BART is a non-issue and this proves it. The tracks and the overpass will need to be addressed. Otherwise, that walk will be fantastic. The 4 extra minutes (compared to BART-to-Championship plaza) will be well worth the trade off. And post-game I bet it won’t take any longer than it currently does, because we all know how much slower that walk is back to BART after a game.

  3. not addressed in this video… a pedestrian bridge will be a HUGE bottleneck and will easily add a LOT of time to that walk. Not to mention traffic lights. A leisurely stroll in the middle of the day is not a fair representation of game-day realities.

  4. “a pedestrian bridge will be a HUGE bottleneck…”

    depending on the design.

  5. Of note: the walk was longer than it needed to be because they chose to hit the waterfront, then had to backtrack back up to Embarcadero. So distance/time is slightly less than what they reported.
    Also would have been interesting to show the alternative walk many will do: immediately cutting over to Washington, and then turning onto 3rd or 2nd. There’s less to do there now, but will likely see places popping up once a ballpark is in place.
