The train stops at 4 downtown stations located near the Civic Center, Union Square, Moscone and Financial District hotels. Fisherman's Wharf hotels are a very short taxi ride from the Embarcadero station. This is the last station before the train goes under the San Francisco Bay to the East Bay and to cities like Berkeley, Oakland and beyond.Purchase a voucher redeemable for a $20 BART ticket. Your $20 BART ticket will have enough value for a round trip BART ride from SFO to Downtown San Francisco, Downtown Oakland or Downtown Berkeley, plus a small balance you can easily upgrade for round trip travel to East Bay destinations or for additional BART rides anywhere in the BART system. If you need to add more value to your BART ticket, you can do so at any BART station Ticket Vending Machine.

Private Transfer: Hotel to Oakland International Airport

Getting to the airport can be a frustrating and stressful event. If simply dealing with traffic wasn’t enough, there’s also the chore of trying to find a parking spot at the airport. The whole process can be simplified by scheduling a private vehicle with a professional chauffeur. Just purchase, confirm, and meet the driver. It’s that simple. And with the choice of a 2-person hybrid, 3-person sedan, or a 6-passenger SUV, it’s easy to include friends, family, or even those co-workers joining in on a business trip.  Service from any San Francisco, Oakland, or Berkeley accommodation to the Oakland International Airport is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so it doesn’t matter when the flight is leaving. This ultra-convenient form of transportation will always be ready to roll when the Oakland airport departures are.
