There are over 38,000 street lights throughout Oakland's city streets. The primary purpose of urban street lighting is to produce safe and comfortable vision during the night on public streets and sidewalks. The benefits of such lighting include reduction of accidents, facilitation of traffic flow, promotion of nighttime operation of businesses and industries, enhanced neighborhoods and increased personal safety and security of the public.

We strive to provide timely response and to repair street lights within 15 days of receiving information that a street light is out.
