Oakland airport is not very busy these days. There is not too much traffic on the road going to the airport. It costs a lot to build BART
tracks. It may be a better to have more frequent shuttles between the airport and BART. I know there is a shuttle at the moment but it can be improved and subsidized to encourage more passengers to take BART.
Further there should be arrangements at BART stations to be able to park your car for more then a few days.

I've taken the shuttle "known as AirBART" twice in the past month and found it to be just as convenient (or more) as waiting for a typical BART train. In fact both times the shuttle was waiting at the airport when I came out from baggage claim and it was just a short ride to the station. There were only a few people on it each time. I'm not sure if the rail version would be successful enough to justify the costs but as long as they aren't using tax money then I don't really care. Air Bart only costs $3 now. If they charge too much for the actual train the a cab becomes an attractive option for the short ride especially if you have a few people in your traveling party.
