5 Reasons to Ride BART to SFO

Riding BART to SFO is more convenient than ever! With more frequent service on the Yellow Line to SFO, shorter wait times and new cars, take BART the next time you fly. Here are our top five reasons to ride BART to SFO:

  1. BART arrives and departs directly from the International Terminal
  2. From the SFO BART station, easily transfer to the AirTrain for a quick ride to any terminal.
  3. BART will take you directly into downtown San Francisco, the Peninsula and East Bay! Explore all the Bay Area has to offer and use the BART Trip Planner when planning your trip to and from SFO.
  4. BART is easy to use - pay fares by loading Clipper to your wallet on your mobile device.
  5. BART is the sustainable choice. Hop aboard to help reduce carbon emissions, air pollution (which results in clearer skies) and congestion on roads. Plus, skip traffic when you take BART to fly SFO!
