Hi there,

I actually had the same issue when I lived in Noe Valley. I'd suggest hunt around on Craigslist. Depending on how picky you are with location (I was pretty picky because I was on a hill, so I had a bit of a hard time finding something within a couple of blocks), you should be able to find several available spots at any given time. However, just be aware that they tend to rent between $300 and $350 a month.

Hope this helps!

BART is almost always faster, so much so that even if it's a longer walk to the station you will probably be better off with BART. The trains are underground for the entire journey so they do not have to compete with surface traffic like Muni does, and there are only a few stops on BART compared to many on Muni.

The best resource for finding out which public transit route to take for your specific circumstances is the official Trip Planner:

Under "Additional Options" you can force it to include or exclude BART or Muni, if the default settings don't give you an option for each.

Parking for rent is more difficult to find in Noe Valley because it is a neighborhood with less commercial activity and therefore without many parking garages and lots. The Mission district has more of those.

In both neighborhoods you may be able to find signs that read 'garage for rent.' The simplest way is, of course to go on Craigslist and search the postings and/or post one with what you are looking for yourself.

Parking/garage costs vary. Get a sense of them on the parking websites that other agents have already mentioned as well as on Craigslist.
