"B.A.R.T." B.A.R.T Tip by Gypsystravels

B.A.R.T, San Francisco: 68 reviews and 72 photos


The BART is one of the easiest and best ways of getting into SF from the airport and to the surrounding areas.

The BART system runs on a mileage based forumla. Your starting and ending points will determine your fair. There are vending machines throughout the stations that take cash, coins and some machines take credit and debit cards. The fare tickets are cards with stored values in them and at the end of your trip, will be deducted upon your exit.

Usually I am picked up at the airport by my friends, but if I am traveling with a companion or on a short mileage run, the B.A.R.T. was always our form on getting into downtown San Francisco fast, easy and very cheaply.

Just be mindful that the BART stops service about 12:00am and doesn't resume until about 6:00 a.m. Recently we were forced to pay an exhuborent fare on a taxi to our hotel because our flight was delayed and we arrived to late for the BART.
