Arriving at McArthur Bart Station at dusk-Taxi and Safety

My wife and are attending an evening wedding party in Oakland in October (on a Sunday). How safe is the area around the McArthur Bart station and how easy is it to get a taxi. Thanks

There will be plenty of taxis waiting. There is a lot of construction going on at the station right now, so you'll have to look for the taxis on the street (just to the left when you exit the fare gates).

The surrounding neighborhood is a mixed bag. It's fine towards the north and east (to 40th & Telegraph), but I would not recommend walking towards the south and west (to MacArthur & MLK) at night.
