Directions to Berkeley

Getting to Berkeley by Air

The best airports to fly in is San Francisco Airport (SFO) (for most international) and then Oakland Airport (OAK) (for many domestic flights).

From the Airport

1. By BART

 

Parking is limited at the Berkeley campus! Whenever possible, we encourage you to use public transportation.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) trains operate from Fremont, Richmond, Bay Point/Concord and San Francisco/Daly City and include service to San Francisco International Airport. BART connects to Oakland International Airport via a short hop on an AirBart shuttle bus. A map indicating the route and stops of each train is located at each BART station. The Berkeley BART station is just 1½ blocks west of the Berkeley campus.
