Getting Around in San Francisco
Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART)
BART provides fast, reliable transportation to and from the San Francisco and Oakland airports, as well as destinations throughout the Bay Area. The Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel, the conference hotel, is located adjacent to the BART Powell Street Station. When you reach the Powell Street stop, take the Hallidie Plaza exit and proceed up the stairs. The hotel is across the street, on the corner of Cyril Magnin and Eddy. The “Parc 55” sign is rather small, but the hotel is next to the cable car stop – so locating the cable car stop can help you find the hotel.
BART trains run every fifteen minutes from 4:00 am to midnight on weekdays and every twenty minutes from 6:00 am to midnight on Saturdays, and 8:00 am to midnight on Sundays. Real time departure information is available at http://www.bart.gov.
Shuttle Services from the Airports

From San Francisco International Airport (SFO), van service is available on a walk-up basis, and pick up on the departures level from the roadway center island at all terminals.
