"Fly into San Jose or San..." Palo Alto Transportation Tip by Zartenejal

Palo Alto Transportation: 6 reviews and 2 photos

Fly into San Jose or San Francisco Intl Airport. Taxis are your best bet from the airport. CalTrain is also a good way to get to Palo Alto from downtown San Francisco or San Jose.
Stanford runs free shuttles called the Marguerite around Stanford Campus and to downtown. Taxis aren't abundant on the street but you can call one and get service quickly. CalTrain runs along the Peninsula through Palo Alto with stops at University (Downtown)and California Ave. CalTrain is a good option for getting to San Francisco as it only costs about $4. Public buses are inexpensive but not especially convenient. Bikes are great for Stanford campus but not allowed on sidewalks downtown.

Type: Train
