BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is the fast, easy, low-cost way to get to San Francisco or other cities from SFO or OAK. The BART fare from SFO to downtown San Francisco is only $8.95, less than half the price of a shared shuttle van ($19), and $40 less than a taxi. Taking BART also avoids traffic and is only a half-hour ride from SFO or OAK to San Francisco. You can also buy round-trip tickets in advance from SFO to any city served by BART at www.bart.gov/Airport Connections page. BART is the car-free way to travel around and see the Bay Area too. Our conveniently located stations are close to many of the Bay Area's most popular destinations, such as these popular destinations (/stations): Union Square/Powell St., Museum of Modern Art/Montgomery St., Asian Art Museum/Civic Ctr., Univ. of California/Berkeley St., SF Ferry Building/Embarcadero St. For more information about places to go and things to do: go to www.bart.gov/guide/destinations.
Oakland International Airport (OAK) also has a new BART train service. Taking BART from OAK is the convenient, fast, inexpensive way to get to San Francisco or other cities from OAK. The 8 minute ride on sleek, new BART trains goes to the Coliseum station and connects to a BART train going to your final destination. During peak hours 8:00 a.m. -8:00 p.m. daily, trains operate every 5 minutes. For information, go to: http://www.bart.gov/guide/airport.
