Getting There & Away

Several Golden Gate Transit buses operate between San Francisco and the San Rafael Transit Center at 3rd and Hetherton Sts ($6.75, one hour). From the transit center, local buses ($2) run by Golden Gate Transit and Marin Transit fan out across the county.

For ambitious cyclists, the Cal Park Hill Tunnel is a safe subterranean passage from Larkspur – a terminus for Golden Gate Ferry services from San Francisco – to San Rafael.
