which airport is closest to stanford, oak or sfo
hey are you interviewing at stanford soon?
i'm flying into SFO.
i'll be there on feb 26th.
even tho i've never been to stanford <shudder>, SFO is definitely closer.
everytime, i fly into SFO, i take the samtrans bus to the colma BART stop (northbound)... its either the BX or KX line. anyways, the other one, takes you straight to stanford (southbound), if you want to do that
also, you might consider flying into sanjose. i don't know where you are flying from, but southwest is hella cheap, i'm a big fan, i've flown with them prob over 50 times , but anyways they don't fly to SFO, only oakland and san jose.
good luck, btw
thanks for the info
what's the cheapest way to get from sfo to stanford
Rent a car. You'll pay a few dollars more, but it will make up for itself in the hassle factor. I think you would need to take two different buses and one train ride to get to Stanford from SFO.
When you call to rent a car, just keep in mind every rate is negotiable. Don't give up until you get a good rate.
i think i read on interviewfeedback.com that supershuttle cost $26
Hey there -- SFO is MUCH closer and an easier commute to Stanford (compared to Oakland). However, San Jose airport is the easiest and closest out of the 3.
As far as transportation, BART does not go as far south as Stanford, so that's out of the question. If you're flying into SFO, you can take CalTrain. There is a (free?) shuttle from the airport to the CalTrain station, then you take the train to the Palo Alto/University exit. There is a free campus shuttle that can pick you up and take you to a number of spots on campus. (that shuttle is really only good if you are staying on campus). This way is by far the cheapest way to go. You can also take a shuttle from either airport, they cost $25-30 each way, depending on the airport, etc. You also might want to consider renting a car if you are going to be staying far from the med school.
