OAK offers new, lower parking rates, more frequent shuttles, and a $10-off coupon that may be used at OAK's Hourly, Daily and extended-stay lots.
Over 14 million travelers annually "fly smart" because they choose OAK for its low fares, more than 200 daily nonstops and convenient location. Now, travelers can also ParkSmart @ OAK. OAK has reduced the daily rates in its extended lots: ValuPark (formerly the Daily B lot) and Economy, to $19 and $15, respectively.

ValuPark is now the best value for close-in, extended-stay parking. The lot is served by complimentary shuttles, but is also within walking distance of Terminals 1 and 2. OAK's lot names and day rates follow:

OAK's $300 million Terminal Improvement Program is designed to add convenience, security and customer service to the travel experience by using "green building" technology. In Terminal 2, the program includes the recently opened seven-gate concourse, baggage claim, passenger screening area and in-line explosives detection baggage screening system. By summer 2007, expanded ticketing, a food court and shopping area will open. Additional improvements to the terminal roadway and curbsides will improve access and ease traffic congestion in front of both terminals. Once completed in 2008, the program will accommodate the needs of OAK's over 14 million annual passengers.
