San Francisco Airport People-Mover Opens

SAN FRANCISCO -- After months of delays, San Francisco International Airport's AirTrain people-mover system last week began operations, transporting car rental customers between the airport terminals and rental facility free of charge.

Airport officials estimate that AirTrain will eliminate the need for about 200,000 shuttle trips annually between the airport terminals and rental facility.

The $430 million system will eventually connect with Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART).
