Help: Taking CalTrain to Meet from San Francisco, Need Help in which Station to Exit

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have to take CalTrain down to the Head-Fi meet. Can someone tell me the most efficient way to get close to the meet via CalTrain?

ie: Should I get off at a CalTrain station near San Jose airport, then take a shuttle to Radisson Hotel to the meet, or is there a more efficient way?

(or, if there is a better way than CalTrains that you know of to get from downtown San Francisco to the meet on Saturday morning, please let me know).

Thank you!

My question exactly

You can find a fairly clear answer by using CalTrain's trip planner online. The shortest time I was able to coax was 2 hours, ten minutes from downtown.

I'm sure you won't mind my hijacking the thread, but maybe some other Head-Fi'eri is also going on the morning of April 21? Personally, I could take the train back myself, and would be willing to chip in on the gas.

Santa Clara/Benton st

I just looked at a valley transit map and it looks like you should get off at the Santa Clara station and catch a shuttle to N. 1st st and I think its a short walk, 3 blocks to 4th st. and you almost there.
www.vta.org It looks like the shuttle will have a gizillion stops in the airport, but after caltrains, you'll be used to it. (Actually, the train's not that bad )

San Francisco

I might be renting a car to drive down from San Francisco on Saturday if someone wants a ride. I have to work on Sunday so I am not staying the night and I don't want to have to leave at any particular time to take the train (plus I gave up my car last year and I really miss driving.) I should know by Friday if I am going to rent a car and I will post again then.

There's a VTA Light Rail station at 1st & Gish, just four blocks from the hotel (which is 1/2 block north of Gish on 4th).

You can take Caltrain to the Mtn. View station, then hop light rail and get off at 1st & Gish. According to the online schedules, that should take just under 2 hours coming from San Francisco.

Renting a car

So I am renting a car tomorrow and picking it up at 10:30am in downtown San Francisco. I am only staying for the day but if anyone in town would like a ride down let me know by midnight tonight.
