Oakland Airport Shuttle Details

Oakland Airport Shuttle

Oakland Airport shuttle photo

About 40 companies offer shuttle service to various locations around Oakland and these can be caught outside the arrivals hall at Oakland Airport. Competition is sometimes fierce, so prices tend to be pretty good for travellers, but scams and games do exist, so best to ask questions before you or your luggage board a shuttle.


Questions to ask include their destination, the cost, if discounts are available for those travelling with you, if it is door-to-door or selected drop-off points only, and most important is when their departure is. Many shuttle companies will usher passengers and their luggage into shuttles where they will then sit for quite a while or until the shuttle is full and meanwhile other shuttles heading to the same destination have long since departed.
