Board to set fares for new Oakland Airport Extension
BART service to Oakland International Airport is expected to begin this Fall but just how much riders will pay for the 3.2 mile trip is still up in the air. The Board is scheduled to vote to set the fare at its 9 a.m. meeting on June 12. The fare options under consideration range from $4-$6 for a one way trip. The meeting is open to the public or can be viewed, both live and archived, online.
BART to Oakland International Airport will replace the existing AirBART buses, reducing travel and wait time, increase system capacity by more than three times and add seven additional vehicles per hour.
For a unique look at this project, now being tested, watch the video above.
