    As per the title, would anyone have experience or suggestions for getting from SFO to ~downtown San Francisco on either Uber, Lyft, Shuttle or Train etc please? The wife and I are over there for a few days in September. Never been to San Fran before (and over 20 years since I was in the USA) so no idea what to expect. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    The simplest and easiest way is to simply catch the BART. It leaves from the international terminal and you’re downtown in about 30 mins. You’d need to check the current price online but from memory earlier in the year it’s about $9 per person to get from the airport into the city (there is a airport surcharge built into the price).

    Where exactly are you heading to downtown? If you’re not near the BART line and don’t want to then walk from a BART station to the hotel you’ll find it just as easy to catch an Uber or Lyft from the airport straight to your hotel.

    Depending on the time of day and traffic an Uber or Lyft starts at just under $30 for the ride into the city. You can use Uber Pool or Lyft Line which is a shared service meaning other people will ride with you and the price drops down to around $20, but obviously the journey takes longer.

    Thanks Steve. We’re about 20 minutes walk from the Powell Street BART station, as it turns out, so walking isn’t an issue. Not much difference in price for two of us to catch the BART or just use Uber\Lyft. Might just see what the day brings then, as neither options need booking. Cheers!
