Shuttles

Shared-ride vans provide a good value alternative to a taxi ride into the city. Van service is available on a walk-up basis at the Roadway Centre Island, on the Departures/Ticketing level of each terminal. You'll find fares range from around $12 to $20 depending on the number of passengers using the service, and how many stops the van has to make. However, passengers are advised to make reservations for service after 11:00 p.m.

Taxis

Taxis are available outside each terminal's Arrivals area. Journey time to/from downtown San Francisco is around 25-30 minutes depending on traffic. Expect to pay around $40. Look for the taxi booking staff, uniformed, by the ranks. They'll take your details and arrange your booking.

A $2.00 exit surcharge is included in all San Francisco taxicab meter fares for rides originating from San Francisco International Airport.
