I did the OAK-SF thing a few weeks ago. Here are the details.

The bus that goes from the airport to the BART is $2. The bus stops are clearly marked and there are vending machines at the bus stop where you have to buy tickets before boarding. They're strict about this. You just put the paper ticket into the slot and sit down. The busses have luggage racks, so they're perrty good.

The BART fare was about $3.50 (look it up to be sure). You buy a fare card at the vending machine inside the station.

On the return, you have to buy your bus ticket from the vending machine as you are exiting the BART station. I seem to recall that I bought a $2 BART farecard, but I'm hazy on this.

One warning: It can be a nightmare getting through security at OAK. Arrive very, very early.
