OAKLAND, CALIF. — The Port of Oakland lowered access fees to terminals in an attempt to stir up competition and give smaller ground transportation companies a chance to service Oakland International Airport.
The port dropped the flat rate charged to limousines, taxis, and shuttle buses in favor of a system based on the number of trips a company makes to the terminals. Companies making 120 trips or less per year will be charged a $300 up-front fee; those making 121 to 200 trips per year will pay $500. Companies making more than 200 trips will be charged $2.50 a trip.
In the past, all companies were required to pay the same fees — a $1,000 deposit and $2.50 per trip.
