From Local Airports to Berkeley

  • San Francisco (SFO) by BART  approx 1 hour, cost $8.65.  At the airport, take the Dublin/Pleasanton train and get off at the Balboa Park Station. Transfer to a Richmond train. (If you forget to transfer at Balboa Park, Just be sure to do so before you get to the last SF stop, Embarcadero) Take the Richmond train to the Downtown Berkeley station. (If a Richmond train is no longer running from SF, take the Pittsburgh/Bay Point train across the bay and make sure to transfer to a Richmond train by the time you get to MacArthur station. You can transfer at 12th St.,19th St., or MacArthur in Oakland.)

  • Oakland (OAK) by BART  approx. 45min.-1 hour, $5.35.                                         Step 1: Get on an AirBart train. AirBART is a convenient shuttle that links the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART Station and Oakland International Airport on the following schedule:
    • Monday through Saturday: 5:00 am to 6:00 am every 20 min
    • Monday through Saturday: 6:00 am to 12:00 midnight every 10 min
    • Sunday: 8:00 am to 12:00 midnight every 10 minutes.

    The AirBART shuttle trip takes 15 to 30 minutes depending upon traffic. It stops in front of the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART Station on San Leandro Blvd. and in front of Terminal 1 and 2 at Oakland International Airport. The final AirBART Bus departure from Coliseum Station is 12 Midnight every evening.  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).

    U.S. residents can also purchase the "BART Travel Pack" for AirBART online with two $3 BART tickets for AirBART and a BART ticket to ride BART to downtown San Francisco and back from the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART station. For additional travel, you can easily add value to your ticket at numerous in-station machines, so you can use the BART ticket throughout the system by adding fare value if necessary.
