BART provides fast, convenient, inexpensive airport transportation from San Francisco International (SFO) or Oakland International (OAK) airports to San Francisco in only 30 minutes. The SFO BART service leaves from inside the International Terminal to four downtown SF stations. The new OAK BART service leaves from a station adjacent to Terminal One to downtown stations with only one connection. We highly recommend that you take BART when you arrive and depart from either airport.
