  • Oakland International Airport Guide

    Full Name: Oakland International Airport
    Location: The airport is situated around 10 miles (16km) from Oakland.
    Time: GMT -8 (GMT -7 from mid-March to the first Sunday in November).

    Tel: +1 510 563 3300.

    Transfer to the City:

    The Oakland Airport BART station is located across from Terminal 1 and a short walk from Terminal 2. A shuttle service links the airport to Coliseum Station in just 8 minutes, with fares depending on the final destination. AC Transit bus line 73 connects passengers to the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART station every 15 minutes, while Line 805 connects the airport to Downtown Oakland every hour between 12.35am and 4.30am.

    Car rental:

    The Rental Car Center is open 24 hours (operating on an 'on demand' basis in the later hours) and has all rental companies in one location, including Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Fox, Hertz, National and Thrifty. A rental car shuttle bus ferries passengers between the terminals and Rental Car Center every 10 minutes. Prior booking is recommended.


    ATMs, shops (including duty-free), restaurants and bars are available in both terminals. Passengers with disabilities are well catered for, but those requiring wheelchairs should contact their airline in advance.


    There are four parking options at Oakland International - the premier, hourly, daily and economy lots. The premier lots are closest to the terminal and cost $4 for every half hour and $38 for 24 hours. The hourly lot is the next closest car park and is probably best for short-term or overnight parking. It costs $1 per 12 minutes, or $34 for 24 hours. The daily and economy lots are furthest from the terminal. Daily parking costs $5 per hour for the first two hours and $24 as a daily maximum, while the Economy Lot has a flat rate of $18. Shuttle services to the terminal from the further parking lots are in operation.
