Did you know when you travel to or from Oakland Airport you can ride a free shuttle? When leaving the airport you simply cross the street, go up the escalator and hop on the free shuttle. The shuttle takes about 10 minutes and it takes you directly to the Coliseum BART station. You do have to pay for BART but the shuttle from the airport is totally free (at least it was as of January 20, 2015).
I took the shuttle when I arrived and departed from OAK and I loved it. It’s such a convenient service and very easy to ride because you don’t need any type of ticket, you just get on. The shuttle does make one stop in the middle of the journey but no one gets on or off. These are my pictures from both of my trips, the shuttle was clean and I felt totally safe.
This is what you see when you hop on the free shuttle leading to BART from the airport.
When you get off of the shuttle heading to Oakland airport you are directly across the street from the terminal. You have to take the escalator (or elevator) down to get to the terminal.
