Getting to Palo Alto

Buses and Shuttles
(Rates are approximate)

  • Super Shuttle: 1(800) 258-3826
    SFO $26


  • Santa Clara Airporter: 1(800) 771-7794
    SFO $39/SJC $30


  • Silicon Valley: 1(800) 400-2365
    SFO $30/SJC $30


  • Yellow Cab: (650) 321-1234
    SFO $50–60/SJC $40–50

If you don’t want to rent a car or take a cab or shuttle, you can get to Palo Alto from either the San Francisco or San Jose Airport by train.

From San Francisco Airport: You will first need to take a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) train (BART schedule here) or taxi from the airport to the Millbrae train station and then catch a CalTrain southbound (train schedule here) to the Palo Alto station (if you are staying at the Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel) or to the California Avenue station (if you are staying at the Hotel California)—the Stanford Terrace Inn is between these two stations.

From San Jose Airport: The Caltrain/Amtrak Station is 3.3 miles from the Airport. There is no direct shuttle or bus from the Airport to the station. Instead, catch the VTA Airport Flyer, which makes frequent stops between the Airport and the Santa Clara CalTrain Station, or take a taxi to the San Jose CalTrain Station.

Take the Northbound train (schedule here) to the California Avenue station (if you are staying at the Hotel California) or the Palo Alto station (if you are staying at the Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel—the Stanford Terrace Inn is between these two stations.

Please note that, although the combined fares for this method of transportation are considerably lower than the alternatives, the convenience is also considerably less.
