Board an Antioch (Yellow line) train or Richmond (Red line) train to one of the four downtown San Francisco BART stations. From there, it’s an easy walk or short cab ride to most San Francisco hotels and the Moscone Convention Center.
Getting to San Francisco airport is as easy as boarding the SFO-bound train from downtown San Francisco and Downtown Oakland on the Antioch to SFO (Yellow) line and the Richmond to Millbrae + SFO (Red) line. SFO will be listed in the name of the train and line. From other areas, it may be necessary to transfer to an SFO-bound train. Check the BART System Map below for transfer points.
Upon arrival at San Francisco International Airport, walk, or take the AirTrain Red Line from the BART Station to Terminal 1, 2 or 3 for domestic flights. The International Terminal check-in counters are a short walk from the BART station main entrance.
Riding BART from Oakland airport to downtown Oakland is as easy as boarding the "BART to OAK train" from Oakland Airport to the Coliseum Station. Once at the Coliseum Station proceed to Platform 3 to purchase your ticket from the ticket-vending machines. From the Coliseum Station transfer to a Richmond-bound train. It takes about 12 minutes to get to the 12th Street/Oakland City Center station, right downtown, a few blocks from Oakland Chinatown and Jack London Square.
