Public Transit & BICYCLES


The Ferry Building is one of the most easily accessed locations in the Bay Area. We encourage shoppers to take public transit to spare the air. You can reach it by all San Francisco BART lines, many MUNI lines, the F Market Streetcar, the California Street Cable Car line, and several ferry lines. From the Peninsula, ride Caltrain and connect with Muni’s N-Judah. Find Bay Area transit information, maps, and schedules at www.transit.511.org.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) The Embarcadero stop is just one block away. Go to www.bart.gov.

SF Municipal Railway (MUNI)  Busses, trains, and streetcars all stop at or near the Ferry Building. Plan your trip at www.transit.511.org.

Ferry Terminals  Sausalito, Oakland, Alameda, and Larkspur ferries are behind the Ferry Building. For schedules, visit www.sanfranciscobayferry.com.

Bicycles  With a large bike lane, the Embarcadero is easily accessed by bicycle. Bike racks are located in front of and behind the building. We recommend that you use a sturdy U-lock, as there have been incidents of cable-clipping. For bike lane maps and cycling information, go to www.sfbike.org.
