Transportation from SFO/OAK to Berkeley:

If you fly into SFO we suggest BART to transport you to and from Berkeley. 

SFO to Berkeley by BART:  At the SFO station, take the Pittsburgh/Bay Point train to the 19th St. Oakland station. Get off that train and take the Richmond train to the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

BART Schedule Information: SFO to Downtown Berkeley

From OAK, it may be easier to take a taxi or airport shuttle, but there is also a bus (AirBART) that can take you to a nearby BART station.   OAK to Berkeley by AirBART (bus) and BART

 

OAK Airport shuttle – Bayporter Express:
If you will be using an airport shuttle, Bayporter Express is recommended by the Berkeley Lab Guest House.  
The Bayporter Express shuttle is familiar with the lab, and will drop you off and pick you up at the Berkeley Lab Guest House

 

 

We strongly encourage the use of public transportation in combination with the LBL Shuttle to access the Lab.  If you plan on using the shuttle, please request a shuttle bus pass when you register.  The bus pass will be mailed to you in advance of the event.  

The Berkeley Lab Shuttle is available for those staying at the Guest House.   Shuttles run Monday through Friday, 6:20 am – 7:16 pm, every 12 minutes and less frequently until 9:28 pm (the last bus does not go all the way to the Guest House). When getting on the shuttle bus from outside of the lab, please show your printed Guest House confirmation to the shuttle bus driver along with your photo ID.  Otherwise, take a taxi (parked around the BART station area) to the Berkeley Lab Guest House. Tell the taxi driver to drive up Hearst to the Berkeley Lab main gate. From the main gate, go up straight on Chu Road, make a right at the first circle into Smoot Road, and then take a right at McMillan Road. The Guest House is located about 100 meters up to your left.


Parking:
 

Carpooling, using a taxi or taking the LBL Shuttle is strongly encouraged, as parking spaces a limited in the lab.  All attendees will be provided with site access.  All guests staying onsite at the Berkeley Lab Guest House (BLGH) will be provided parking in Lot Z located across the street from the BLGH.
