The most convenient and cheapest way from your airport to hotel and back

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) leaves SFO and OAK airports every 10-15 minutes and arrives on the Powell St station in about 30 minutes for SFO and 20 minutes for OAK.  Cheaper and more predictable than a cab, faster and cheaper and less hassle than a SuperShuttle.  From SFO to Powell St the fare is $8.10 and $3.80 from OAK to Powell St (same rates going back).  You can pay with credit/debit card (visa/mastercard/discover).  More info about buying tickets with credit/debit cards

 

If you are over 65 or have a disability you can go round trip for $9 and also still have credit enough to do some siteseeing but likely have to buy the ticket online ahead of time in order to take advantage of that.

 

Click here to see the Powell St stop relative to all the hotels and the Moscone Center.

 

BARTs infomation about tranportation to/from the airport.

 

If you have an odd flight time then take note of when BART is available:

 

BART Weekday Service Hours

4:09 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.

 

BART Weekend Airport Service Hours

Sat: 5:54 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.

Sun: 8:00 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.
