MacArthur BART turnstiles - source kkr

MacArthur BART station sits between West MacArthur Blvd and 40th St west of Telegraph Avenue.

MacArthur is a crowded stop during morning and evening commutes: "Mornings at MacArthur are particularly miserable because it’s a transfer point between two lines hauling heavy loads." [source] If you do a morning/evening commute to and from SF and if you have flexibility about where to get on/off in Oakland, you'll probably have a better chance by transferring at the 19th Street or 12th Street stations.
