Protesters after the 2009 police shooting of Oscar Grant

Service at the station began on September 11, 1972.[2] The redevelopment of the immediate station area from a parking lot to a mixed-use "transit village" has served as a model for transit-oriented development planning elsewhere in the Bay Area.

On January 1, 2009, a BART police officer fatally shot an unarmed man, Oscar Grant III, at Fruitvale station while responding to reports of a fight on a train.[3][4] Grant's death sparked several protests in Oakland, and was one of several police killings that contributed to the nationwide Black Lives Matter movement.[5][6]Fruitvale Station, a film about the killing, was released in 2013.
