Travel safely with Welcome Pickups
Net Safety Score
We’ve introduced a metric indicating how safe travellers feel when using our services during the COVID-19 pandemic. After every ride, we ask each traveller to leave a review.
20 minute gap between transfers
Following each ride, our drivers have at least 20 minutes to thoroughly clean the surfaces of the car and ventilate the cabin.
Regular Car Sanitisation
Our drivers thoroughly sanitise and disinfect cars according to Welcome Safety Protocol
When you book, you can request to have zero contact with the driver during the transfer with just one click. In this case, the driver won’t help you with your luggage or shake hands.
Sanitiser in every car
We provide hand sanitisers and hand wipes for all our travellers. Our drivers have their own sanitiser, which they use before and after every ride
Fast and Reliable Oakland Airport Taxi
Located on the east side of San Francisco Bay, the charming city of Oakland has so much to offer. Be sure to explore the restored Victorian architecture and boutiques of Old Oakland, stop for a bite in their famous China Town, and enjoy an evening in the modern Uptown area, with its many theatres, restaurants, bars and galleries. To get into downtown Oakland and begin exploring as soon as possible, we recommend taking a convenient Oakland airport taxi.
After collecting your baggage, you will find your driver waiting patiently outside of the arrivals hall. They will be holding a sign with your name printed on it, ready to give you a warm Californian greeting. Even if your flight is delayed, your driver will always be on time, as we provide them with live updates on any flight changes.
Your driver will then lend a hand carrying any heavy luggage and will lead you to your pre-selected vehicle to begin your Oakland airport shuttle service. Feel free to ask your driver any questions about the city, as all of our Welcome Pickups drivers are local experts. Leave your Oakland airport taxi transfer to us, so you can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Directions for your Oakland Airport Shuttle
Oakland International Airport (OAK), is located in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. This airport mainly serves domestic flights all over the United States but also offers international flights to and from destinations such as Mexico and the Azores. The airport is around 15 km from the city centre, so taking an Oakland airport taxi shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes.
Once you’re safely in the vehicle, your driver will exit the airport terminal and will head south on Cowan Pkwy toward John Glenn Dr. You will then turn left onto the ramp for Interstate 880/Downtown Oakland, and merge onto Bessie Coleman Dr. After around 1 km, you will keep left to continue on 98th Ave, before taking the ramp towards Downtown Oakland and merging onto the I-880 North. You will follow this major road for around 11 km, before keeping right at the next fork, to continue on I-980 East. Here, your driver will begin following the signs for Walnut Creek, which will lead them to exit 1A for 11th St toward 14th St. Taking this exit, you will merge onto Castro St and follow it into the heart of downtown Oakland.
