Oakland International Airport (OAK) is the closest, most convenient airport to Berkeley. Located 15 miles south of the city, the airport is 20-30 minutes away by car or 40 minutes away by public transit. You can take the local area train – BART – to Berkeley. From the airport, take the AirBART directly to the Coliseum Station and then board a Richmond-bound train. Of course there is always a shared-shuttle, taxi, Uber or Lyft option.

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is also convenient to Berkeley. Because it is situated further from town, the most convenient option is to take BART. BART boards at the airport’s International Terminal, and timed transfers are provided to Richmond-bound trains at 19th Street/Oakland Station. Total travel time on BART is just under an hour. The drive is 30 minutes with light traffic (but count on one hour as traffic is usually busy). Of course there is always a shared-shuttle, taxi, Uber or Lyft option.

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)

BART offers service through Berkeley and to/from San Francisco and other parts of the Bay Area. Berkeley is served by two lines: The Richmond-Fremont line (designated orange on maps but referred to by destination station name) and the Richmond-Millbrae line is designated red on maps but referred to by destination station name. Berkeley is served by 3 stations: Ashby, Downtown Berkeley and North Berkeley. The Downtown Berkeley stop is located at Shattuck Avenue and Center Street, one block west of the university campus, and is the primary stop for all visitors.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Shuttle Route

LBNL runs a local shuttle, which will be the most convenient way of getting to and from LBNL.  View the routes and timetables.


If you do drive your car into Berkeley, you will receive a parking permit at the Strawberry Gate.  Check with your hotel for it’s parking accommodations.
