Travel Information

You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the SAS training course. The training center and the recommended hotels are approximately 15 miles from the San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The recommended hotels are very close to our training center and offer valet parking. The training center is located in the Post Montgomery Center at 120 Kearny St. If entering through the attached Crocker Galleria, that entrance is called One Montgomery.

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit): From either SFO or Oakland International Airport, BART is the fastest, easiest, and cheapest method of transportation. The ride from SFO is about 30 minutes and the fare is $8.65. From Oakland, take the AirBART bus ($2 one-way) to the BART station for your 30-minute ride into the city (fare approximately $4.05). Exit at Montgomery St for the SAS training center. Look for the One Post Plaza exit. For the office, turn left on Post St and walk one block to Kearny St and turn right to 120 Kearny St and check in with the front desk. Those going first to any of the SAS recommended hotels (other than the Westin) should use the Powell St exit.

Ferries: Weekday commuter ferry service runs from Sausalito, Larkspur and Tiburon to the Ferry Building at the Embarcadero. There are Free Muni Transfer Ticket Machines when you exit the Boat Dock Area. You can catch a Muni Bus 2 blocks west of the Ferry Building on Market St. then get off at Montgomery St. The Blue and Gold Fleet covers Vallejo (415-705-5444).

MUNI Metro: Metro cars travel underground beneath Market St to the BART/MUNI Montgomery Station. The Market St. and 2nd St exit brings you up at Montgomery St. The Market St. & 3rd St. exit brings you up at Kearny St. For information, call 415-673-MUNI.

Golden Gate Transit Bus System: Buses from Marin and Sonoma county stop on Battery St; outbound buses leave from the East Bay Terminal. Both stops are within walking distance of the 1 Montgomery Building. For information, call 415-923-2000 (San Francisco), 707-541-2000 (Sonoma County), and 415-455-2000 (Marin County).

CAL-TRAIN and SAMTRANS: Train and bus service from San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. The CAL-TRAIN terminal is at 4th and Townsend. The SAMTRANS buses enter the city from different routes, but most lines travel on Mission St, at which point you would get off on New Montgomery and cross over to Market St one block away. For information, call 415-508-6200 (or 800-660-4287 from Northern California area codes.)

When you exit the CAL-TRAIN Station, to your right (south) is the MUNI/Rail platform. Signs are posted in the station for MUNI directions. Fare is $1/one-way. You need to purchase your ticket at either of two locations: at the corner of 4th and King St as you exit the CAL-TRAIN Station, or across the street at the loading platform for the 'N Judah' Line. This trolley will travel above ground around the waterfront before entering the underground MUNI Embarcadero Station. At this point, refer to MUNI METRO instructions listed above.

SFO Airporter Shuttle: There are a number of Airport Shuttle Services you can pick up at the Ground Transportation Island at the airport. Super Shuttle is a good choice as it is a smaller van and will give more direct service. The fare is $12. Their stands are located outside the US Air, United, and International Terminal areas.

Taxi: These are always available, but the cost can range from $50 to $60 depending on traffic.
