How to Get from San Francisco Airport to San Francisco

There are several ways to get from San Francisco airport to San Francisco.

The best way to get from San Francisco airport to the city center depends on your budget, how fast you want to get there, and where you are staying in the city.

If you want a fast ride, don’t care about the price, and are staying outside of the Mission, Union Square, SOMA, or Financial District areas, a taxi would be a good option.

If you don’t care about how fast you get to the city, are traveling to San Francisco on a budget, and are staying in the Mission, Union Square, SOMA, or the Financial District, taking a BART train from San Francisco Airport to the city center is a good idea.

See below for more information on both options.
