BART – Bay Area Rapid Transit
Children 4 and under ride free. BART tickets are like debit cards with stored value. BART’s fare structure is built on a mileage-based formula therefore weekly or monthly passes are not available.
When you enter BART, insert your ticket into the fare gate and it will be returned to you. Use the same ticket when you exit. The correct fare will be automatically deducted and tickets with remaining value will be returned. If your ticket has too little value, a sign on the fare gate will read “Underpaid: Go to Addfare.” A nearby Addfare vending machine will tell you how much additional fare you must add to your ticket to exit the BART system.
You can use a credit card in select machines at all stations. NOTE: The ticket machine will not dispense more than $4.95 in change for any one transaction.
Average Fare to San Francisco is $3-4
AirBART shuttle travels between OAK and the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART Station every 10 minutes during the day. The AirBART shuttle trip takes approximately 15 minutes. It takes 30 minutes or less to reach downtown San Francisco. It stops in front of the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART Station on San Leandro Blvd. and in front of Terminal 1 and 2 (Southwest Airlines).
Fares for AirBART are $3.00 for an adult, $1.00 for children (12 and under), seniors (65 and over) and persons with disabilities (with ID).
AirBART fare is payable in cash (exact change only) or a $3.00 BART ticket from a regular BART ticket machine (bus fare boxes will not return BART tickets with more than $3.00 in value).
