Both SFO and OAK have easy access to San Francisco via BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), cab, shuttle, or rental car.
Both Highway 101 North and Interstate 280 North go directly into San Francisco. From these, you can access downtown and any other part of the city. It is also possible to take the beautiful Highway 1 north along the coast; Highway 1 merges with I-280 just south of San Francisco.
From Points North
Highway 101 South runs directly from the north over the Golden Gate Bridge (toll bridge) and into San Francisco. More inland, Interstate 5 South and Interstate 80 West meet in Sacramento; from there, follow I-80 West until you cross the Bay Bridge (toll bridge), which goes directly into San Francisco.
Within the Bay Area, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) lines go directly to several stops in downtown San Francisco.
Getting Around San FranciscoTransit 511 is the best resource for public transportation around San Francisco.
San Francsico Municipal Transportation Agency (Muni) provides bus, light rail, cable car, and historic streetcar service throughout the city. Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) serves downtown San Francisco and the Mission District (just down the hill from the Castro Theatre), and shares downtown stations with Muni light rail lines.
