By Public Transportation
Take BART from SFO and OAK for AUA2018
BART direct service from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Oakland International Airport (OAK) is the fast, dependable, traffic free ride to your AUA2018 hotel in San Francisco. (SF)
We recommend that you take BART when you arrive and depart from OAK or SFO airports. BART airport transfers to San Francisco are value priced and takes less time to get downtown, especially when there's traffic. Local attendees are also encouraged to take BART to the conference.
BART SFO/OAK Round Trip – $19 – $21.00*/$21.40
SuperShuttle SFO/OAK One Way – $17.00/$57.00
Uber/Lyft SFO/OAK One Way – $30.00/$34.00
Save time, purchase a BART SFO voucher in advance
If you're flying into SFO it's easy to get a round–trip (RT) SFO to San Francisco transfer. Purchase a RT SFO to San Francisco transfer voucher for only $21.00. Then print IT, read IT, take It and exchange IT for a BART ticket at the SFO International Terminal–G information booth, just outside the BART station entrance. Just follow the directions on your voucher to the information booth. When you get your ticket, go to the BART station, enter the fare gates and board the train. Get off the train at the downtown station below that's closest to your hotel. BART service agents are available in the stations to assist you, if needed.
Save money take BART from OAK to San Francisco
Go to the new BART station across from Terminal 1 and board the train to the Coliseum station. When you arrive there, get a $22.00 OAK to San Francisco RT ticket. Then exit at the fare gate and walk down to the main train platform. Proceed to the right side of the platform and take any San Francisco bound train to the station closest to your hotel. The total trip downtown takes 30–40 minutes. The ticket has enough value for your ride back to OAK.
