SFO is extending the Blue Line AirTrain from the Rental Car Center to the Lot DD Long-Term Parking Structure.  This project includes two new AirTrain stations (one at Lot DD and one at the new on-Airport hotel) and system upgrades.  As a result, periodic shutdowns of some roads around the Airport, as well as periodic nighttime shutdowns of the AirTrain, will be necessary through 2020 when the project is complete.  View AirTrain extension and improvements for more information.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to build for the future.
