    There have been so many driver v ped crashes that “journalists” are back to calling them “accidents”.

    That OAC article is strange. Didn’t AirBART only take 12 minutes, and wasn’t really influenced by traffic? I don’t remember any trip from the BART station to the airport taking “much longer” than “20-25 minutes”

  • DrunkEngineer

    Indeed the OAC article is strange. It talks about “schlepping” luggage to the bus — even though the OAC monorail requires much more walking.

    I’ve been caught in some horrendous traffic on Hegenberger or whatever, on AirBART. Not that I agree this is the solution….

  • mikesonn

    BRT $500k not OAC $500m.

    BART loves to make it rain though.

  • EastBayer

    Perhaps I’ve been lucky. It sounded like the article was painting a more desperate picture of current transit to the airport than actually exists.

    My wife was flying in/out of OAK 4+ times a month using AirBART and never had a problem.

    I missed a flight to Hawaii because AirBART got stuck in an epic traffic jam–and that was the last time I flew out of Oakland.

    The recent carnage has been shocking, even for a city with so many truly awful motorists.
