Oakland International Airport Adds New Natural Gas Parking Shuttle Buses

Oakland International Airport (OAK) recently celebrated the arrival of new parking shuttle buses powered by clean-burning natural gas. The vibrant blue buses have just completed the testing period and are already in use. OAK now provides convenient and environmentally sustainable service between airline terminals and parking facilities.

“Safety, security, and enhanced customer service are top priorities at OAK,” said Acting Parking and Ground Transportation Manager, Alma Peña. “This is just as true for customers boarding aircraft as it is for passengers riding the new and improved parking shuttles.”

The new fleet replaces the 2003 Ford Aerotech Cutaway minibuses with El Dorado Class-E buses from Creative Bus Sales.

OAK’s public and employee parking facilities are just a short bus ride away from the terminals. During the last fiscal year, 921,457 passengers rode OAK parking shuttles.
