San Francisco International Airport (SFO) - Guide to San Francisco (SFO) Airport

San Francisco boasts an excellent public transport network, making it relatively easy to get around the city. No trip to San Francisco would be complete without a ride on one of the iconic cable cars, whether for fun or convenience. The cable cars are operated by the San Francisco Municipal Railway System, known as Muni. They're a reliable way to get around and you can buy your tickets directly from the conductor or from the ticket booths near Fisherman's Wharf.

If you're heading between San Francisco and East Bay, the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit, or BART, is a high-speed rail network that connects the city's districts with links to Oakland, Richmond, Concord and Fremont. The city's buses are also a convenient way to get around town, with routes serving almost all of the city and beyond.

Public transport in San Francisco is decent and you shouldn't need to hire a car if you're staying within the city. If you're traveling farther afield, there are plenty of car hire companies should you wish to rent a car.

The Golden Gate Ferry Service runs between the San Francisco Ferry Building and is a scenic way to travel. There are also ferry services that travel to Pier 39 in the Fisherman's Wharf area and Tiburon.

San Francisco International Airport is one of America's busiest and is served by numerous domestic and international flights. The airport is located just 14 miles from the city center and has excellent facilities including ATMs, restaurants, shopping, parking and car rental. The San Francisco area is also served by Oakland International Airport.
