Oakland to Sausalito without a car

by mpsteel

What's the best way to get from Oakland to Sausalito without a car? I assume a cab would be pretty expensive.

Thanks.

Re: Oakland to Sausalito without a car

I think the cheapest option by public transport may be via San Francisco. As far as I remember there is a train service (the BART?) from Oakland to SF and you can then catch a ferry across the bay to Sausalito. I presume there's also bus services from Oakland to SF but I'm not aware of any that go all the way to Sausalito. The boat trip over is really nice on a clear day with great views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge & of course Alcatraz :)

Yes, BART is the train system for the Oakland/San Francisco bay area. I think this would be your best option and then as the previous poster said you can then catch the ferry over to Sausalito. I've taken a bus many years ago between Sausalito and San Francisco so I would assume that it is still available today.

Besides the ferry from SF to Sausalito you can also use Golden Gate Transit which is part of the Golden Gate Bridge Transit Authority. See the Golden Gate Transit web site for times and cost. It is a quick bus ride and will travel across the Golden Gate Bridge and then down into Sausalito. You might consider the ferry one way and the bus the other. If you choose the bus then take it back to the city as you will get some great views as you travel across the Golden Gate Bridge, also sit on the left side of the bus for the best views of the City.

Travel Tips for San Francisco

know WHEN to visit

by Manyana

san francisco is a very nice town to visit, walk around, and have a good night life. however, if you should know when to visit this nice city. because it's foggy most of the time and probably rainy, it is not a good treat to yourself if you're a first-time visitor. like myself, just wandering around in foggy and rainy october, it just makes it uncomfortable to move around, especially when i want to take photos.

there are seasons for every event in SF; summer is great for chilling out in the sun and taking good photo shots; autumn -oct, nov- is the opera season, and of course the halloween crazy balls.

so be prepared, and plan ahead when and why you want to visit SF. for me, wish i came here over the summer for clearer sky and sleeveless shirts:D in Golden Gate Park, it was very foggy that i could hardly seen a tower behind the fog. it's not my fondest memory but the foggest!

The Castro

by IceBear7

Walking around the Castro is a great thing to do on a lazy afternoon. The formerly wild gay community seems now very relaxed with the rainbow flag flying everywhere.
Nice neighbourhood with stores and cafes and bars. I really loved the little corner shops with fresh fruit and veg and other basic groceries, they even decorated the streets outside with their supplies.

San Francisco as seen from Treasure Island

by AGBAT

My favorite thing about San Francisco is leaving it. This picture is from Treasure Island with the Bay Bridge and the San Fransico waterfront. To get to Treasure Island (a former Navy Base) you exit off the Bay Bridge about half way betweew Oakland and San Francisco. My fondest memory is getting past the Bay Bridge traffic jam and having clear traffic through Oakland all the way to the I-5

My favorite part of the trip...

by bellatrix

My favorite part of the trip was visiting Chinatown and the Japanese tea garden in Golden Gate park. Chinatown was a thriving center of colors, sights and smells, and great shopping. The Japanese tea garden was the polar opposite of this, being quiet and serene... and with lovely scenery to take in. And the jasmine tea and cookies they served was a delight. My favorite memories of SF are of biking and walking around the city, taking in the hills and charming houses, the bay and the bridges, the atmosphere and energy of the city. There's no one thing I can put my finger on, rather it's a collection of memories that gets my nostalgia stirring for this great city.

San Francisco Tip

by harveys1

Arriving after transatlantic flight and finding that the Gay Pride Festival was in full swing. Nice British accent, smart suit, feeling tired so going with the flow etc is a very good way of being chatted up. Nice to know one is wanted.
