South of downtown Atlanta, the area around the Oakland City station has undeveloped land, rundown buildings and few destinations to walk to unless you live nearby. Inside the station, trains arrive on an elevated platform above street level. All exits go down to a central concourse area where you’ll find vending and Breeze Card machines.
There are two ways to exit the station at that point: Lee Street (west) and Murphy Avenue (east). See below for destinations near each exit to plan your commute.
The Lee Street exit is in the southwest corner of the station and provides access to:
- Free daily parking lot
- Rev. James Orange Park
- Potential future transit-oriented development
A tunnel in the northeast of the station travels under freight railroad lines and leads to Murphy Avenue, but there is only a stairway exit out of the station. If you need wheelchair accessibility, exit via Lee Street and take bus 172 around to Murphy Avenue or turn right on Dill Avenue from the parking lot. Otherwise, use the Murphy Avenue exit for the following destinations:
- Perkerson Park
- The B Complex
- Sylvan Hills neighborhood
- Capitol View neighborhood
- BeltLine Westside Trail
- Mondelez International Bakery
- Bus 172 (if you are on Murphy Avenue and need the handicap-accessible station entrance)
