Background informationProject Created: November 19, 2010

Project Name: Oakland Airport Connector (O&M)
Year in Operation:
Sector: Transportation
Subsector: Transit, Transportation Terminal
Status: Design / Construction
Type: New Facility
Description: The project involves the design and construction of a 3.2-mile extension of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system to the Oakland International Airport. The system is an Automated People Mover (APM), a driverless people moving system on an elevated and automated guide way system. The construction of two new stations at each end of the line is also part of the project. The project also involves an Operate and Maintenance contract for a term of 20 years.
Delivery Method as described in the country where it's located: Operations & Maintenance
Is the project still active: Yes
Comments: This operate and maintain contract is unique in that the owner required the O&M contractor to provide a bond to complete the work while bidding out the Design-Build contract. This incentivizes the O&M contractor to provide input on building a "quality" system among other benefits.

Souces of Project Support (Non-monetary)

Checkbox Checked Access to Land: The operations and maintenance term will be for 20 years after construction is complete. The O&M contractor is free to access the project via the project ROW free of charge over that 20-year term. At the end of the term, the project will be turned back over to the owner, or re-contracted out for another O&M term.
Checkbox Checked Revenue Stream (Cash Flow) Protected Through Long Term Commitment(s) of Public Sponsor(s): The owner has agreed to pay the O&M contractor a fixed capital asset repair/replacement payment of $5 million per year to cover the operations and maintenance fees. This fund is generated through the fare box, the premium charged for riders to use the system.
Checkbox Checked Environmental Clearance: The project completed an Environmental Assessment Document to meet NEPA requirements at both the State and Federal level, since project funding was received from both. Among some of the specifics in assessment were dust, sound, and parking control/mitigation measures. Moreover, the O&M contractor specifically must adhere to "cleanliness" specifications determined during the 20 year term.
