Fort Mason provides about 150 parking lots, costing $12 for weekday parking. However, we recommend coming by a taxi, Lyft, Sidecar, Uber or Carma. There's plenty of space for bikes, too.

For those traveling by plane, the San Francisco Airport is connected to Downtown SF by the BART system. The BART station at SFO is located in the International Terminal, a short walk from United Airlines in Terminal 3 and a slightly longer walk from Terminal 1 (you can also take the free AirTrain to get to the BART station).
The BART ride from SFO to San Francisco downtown costs $8.65 one-way and runs frequently, every 15 or 20 minutes. Ticket machines accept cash and debit cards.
