Oakland International Airport (OAK) also has a new BART train service. Taking BART from OAK is the convenient, fast, inexpensive way to get to San Francisco or other cities from OAK. The 8 minute ride on sleek, new BART trains goes to the Coliseum station and connects to a BART train going to your final destination. During peak hours 8:00-20:00 daily, trains operate every 5 minutes. Every round trip from SFO or OAK to San Francisco on BART's all electric trains keeps 20 pounds of carbon particles out of the air.
