Oakland approves 'Clear' security pass

The Oakland Board of Port Commissioners approved Clear to provide express security service at Oakland International Airport, the board announced Wednesday. For an annual cost of $100 plus a Transportation Security Administration pre-screening fee of $28, applicants will receive a Clear identity card, which will expedite them through special security lanes.

The enrollment stations will take photographs, fingerprints and iris images and will check two forms of government-issued identification.

The ordinance was approved by the commission Tuesday and will provide Clear screening checkpoints in Terminals 1 and 2.

The airport, which is owned and operated by the Port of Oakland, is expected to open registered traveler enrollment stations next month and express lanes soon after, the commission said.

“The Port of Oakland's goals and priorities for Oakland International Airport continue to be greater security, comfort and convenience to our passengers,” said commission President Anthony Batarse.

“By bringing Clear's registered traveler services to Oakland passengers, we continue to meet and exceed these important security and customer service standard.”

“We're delighted to be chosen by the Port of Oakland through its competitive process,” said Clear CEO Steven Brill. “Travelers in the Bay Area will be thrilled to have Oakland International Airport in board and will be able to use their Clear cards soon at all three Bay Area airports.”
