Getting to UC Berkeley

The closet airport to campus is the Oakland International Airport. From the Oakland Airport, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a great option to get to downtown Berkeley. You may also choose to fly into San Francisco International Airport although the travel time from this airport to campus is considerably longer than from Oakland. BART also has trains from San Francisco to Berkeley. 

Parking can be hard to find on campus. With no free parking on campus and limited street parking available, using public transportation is highly encouraged. For more information on parking, including information regarding available pay lots, view
