My favorite bit from the article here: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2010/06/10/BA5U1DTG62.DTL#ixzz0qWpXVy1C
Jacobson accomplished all of this, including travel expenses to Portland and Seattle, with a $1,275 grant from the office of the Stanford Vice-Provost of Undergraduate Education. But he spent only $987.
That’s pretty cost-effective, especially when you consider that Oakland city officials paid $300,000 for a streetcar feasibility study in 2005 and applied for an additional $330,000 in feasibility funds this year.January 5, 2013 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #378907
BART to airport connector is on track
Published 8:50 pm, Sunday, December 30, 2012
The long line of asymmetrical concrete columns in the median of Hegenberger Road, some topped with a half-mile of white steel trestle, are a sure reminder that there will soon be a new way to get to the Oakland International Airport.
After years of hoping, planning and fighting, BART’s long-awaited and controversial Oakland Airport Connector is taking shape. Construction crews have been working on the 3.2-mile link between the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART Station and the airport since late 2010. It will replace AirBART, a shuttle bus operated by the Port of Oakland.

Until 1958, Oakland had a system of streetcars that shuttled passengers from across the city to its Western edge, where they could catch ferries or commuter rail to San Francisco. Half a century later, streetcars may be coming back to Oakland.

Oakland transit developers could go streetcar route
By Chip Johnson Updated 9:47 am, Tuesday, November 4, 2014
To borrow and twist a well-known phrase, a streetcar on Broadway could be Oakland’s next desire. The city last week held the second of two public hearings on an ambitious plan to construct a streetcar that would run from the MacArthur BART Station down the Broadway corridor to Jack London Square.
