Arriving from SFO:
BART: Board the BART in the
International terminal toward Pittsburg/Bay Point and transfer to the
Richmond line at 19th Street Oakland Station. The transfer is
timed, meaning that the Richmond-bound train (which stops in Berkeley)
should be waiting on the other side of the platform. Get off the
BART at the Downtown Berkeley station.
Hotel Shattuck is located directly outside the west Allston Way BART
exit. This is the least expensive option.
SuperShuttle and Bayporter Express also run
to/from the airports to downtown Berkeley and cost about $40 per leg.
Arriving from OAK:
BART: Take the AirBart shuttle ($3,
exact change) to the Coliseum BART station. Get on the Richmond
line, which takes you directly to Downtown Berkeley.
Supershuttle and Bayporter Express also run
to/from OAK, and costs about $25 per leg.
For all public transportation information in the Bay Area, you can
visit transit.511.org, which
includes schedules for all buses, the BART, as well as information
about transportation in the surrounding area.
If you are driving in from CARMA/OVRO, make sure that you check which mountain passes
