United Streetcar has partnered with Doppelmayer Cable Car of California (DCC) to build and install four articulated cable cars for the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District, Oakland International Airport Connector Project. The $484 million automated people mover project will provide 3.2-mile connection between the Coliseum BART station and the Oakland International Airport.
A joint venture between Flatiron and Parsons will design and construct the fixed facilities stations and guideway piers, and DCC will supply the elevation steel guideway and Automated People Mover technology. DCC will operate and maintain the system for up to 20 years.
The vehicles will be designed by DCC and built by United Streetcar. Each vehicle will consist of three articulated aluminum car sections, which can be expanded to four car sections in the future.
