Oakland Airport Connector
The Oakland Airport Connector (OAC) links BART’s Coliseum station with the Oakland International Airport via a mostly elevated automated people mover (APM) system along Hegenberger Avenue. Trains will leave every four to five minutes between the airport and BART stations, replacing the current AirBART bus system. Similar to the AirTrain at the San Francisco International Airport, Oakland will now have a state-of-the-art train-to-plane connection, making it an attractive destination for business and travel.
