Bart - Oakland Airport Connector

Category: Aviation , Transit

bart_oak.jpgOakland: Though it may be a while before it's actually built, a project to put an "airtrain" type of connection between Oakland Airport and the Colliseum BART station is well underway.

Right now, you have to take a clunky bus from the station to the airport, which takes a while and probably turns off some passengers. The train, though expensive, should be an ideal solution to reduce travel times, cope with a massive increase in passengers, and promote public transit to many who wouldn't otherwise consider it.
