The electron transport properties of B80 fullerene are studied using first-principles density functional theory in conjunction with the Landauer-Buettiker quantum transport formalism. The electron transmission in B80 fullerene is calculated to be much higher than that in C60 fullerene in the Fermi-level region. The enhanced transmission in the B80 fullerene is attributed to its spatially extended charge distribution in delocalized bonds.
