Airport shuttles

There are numerous companies that offer shuttle vans into San Francisco and other bay area destinations.
To catch a shuttle from SFO go up to the 2nd level, above baggage claim. There's shuttles there 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week. Before you get in a van be sure to agree on a price first. Also be sure find out how many stops it will be before you get dropped off. A short trip can turn into a long one if they drive all over town before getting to you
If you are planning to take a shuttle from your accomodation to the airport reservations are required. To take a shuttle from SFO its first come first served.
Take a look at this web site for an extensive list of shuttle companies and their phone numbers.

I used Airporter shuttle on my trip to the airport. He was on time and VERY fast. He picked me up, then 6 more ppl, and got us all 30mi/50km to the airport in 50 minutes. Since I got reservations thru my hostel it was only $9. A normal fee is $15.

From and To The Airport

Use The Super Shuttle Bus Service if Travelling alone it's around 13$ a ride to the city from SFO and will drop you to your door. You need to head up to the Arrivals floor to catch the shuttle (this is where it will drop off passengers coming from the city to take their flights). Very Frequent every 5 mins.

Getting Around

Airport Shuttles : are a definite step up from busing it. Rates range from $10 to $20 per person (tickets can be bought from the driver) and it's a door-to-door service.

Taxi : The most expensive - but most convenient - option for getting into town may be your only recourse if your plane lands in the wee hours. Taxis are found outside the terminal's baggage claim area in a zone marked with yellow columns. Be sure to haggle for a flat rate.

From airport to downtown SFO

Rather than spending your bucks on a taxi ride, take the bus! It may take you a bit longer to get to Downtown, but it costs a mere USD3.00 oneway. Buses depart regularly, just outside the arrivals building. Ask an airport representative which busstop you have to go to (I wasted 20mins waiting at the wrong stop...).

Arriving at the new San...

Arriving at the new San Francisco International Airport alone I had to find a way to get into the city. I literally walked outside and there were numerous people working for shuttle bus companies trying to get you on to their bus. From what I could tell, there is really no difference between the companies, if there is a shuttle waiting just hop in. If you are in a hurry, it may be a good idea to ask the driver how long the trip will take to your destination as they decide the order in which everyone is dropped off. By the way, the new San Francisco airport is ultra-modern, sleek and very minimalist. Be sure to take a look around!

shuttle - $13/per person each way.
cab - $30/per cab up to 5 person each way.
limo - $30 - $50.
We prefer that unless you are from a busy, metropolitan city, where the steering wheels are on the left side, don't drive here. People are not polite, traffic is dense, and there are too many cars for our small city, parking is crazy and expensive, take a cab, bus, or walk, you'll see sights better anyways.

Take the 'super shuttle' from SFO to the city, you'll save money on the cab fare.
Avoid MUNI (our public transportation system) they suck bigtime. However, BART and CALTRAIN are great. Try walking, it's a small city and you might find something interesting along the way.

We flew. The airport isn't that far away. If you can arrange it, try to get transfers from your hotel ... it's cheaper.
Like I said before, use the buses. Or try walking those hills; you'll be in the best shape you have ever been in a long time!

No need to worry about this. Most of the hotels propose a shuttle service for 10-15$: much less expensive than a taxi and much more confortable than a bus...
