You'll probably have to take muni and/or the metro (unless you intend to bike) which will probably be approximately 45 minutes from this location to the cal train station.

Here is a link to the cal train and muni site:

There are many neighborhoods that don't have permits. Miraloma Park is one. The city probably has a map on the SFMTA web site.

NH switched its tolling last year, we have a high speed lane (55mph) where you do not have to stop but there is still lanes for cash that are seperated a mile out by dividers and lots of signs. It works well. On our other toll roads they had previous switched to easy pass with the middle lanes you drive thru at 25 mph and the right sides are cash. Despite the multiple signs tourists can not read and often swing over from the easy pass to cash lanes 5 lanes over without looking or stopping. I dont see how having no cash lanes will work unless they make people get offbefore the bridge.... ... more

I've used it! If you live on California Street near Nob Hill and/or on Van Ness, the trolly is a really cool way of getting to work in the Financial District (California line) and, if you use your MUNI card, it should be the same price as a bus. But yes, you can commute on a trolley! ... more

I would not suggest it because if you get a ticket, trying to prove that the meter was broken would be more of a hassle than it is worth.

While that's an exciting prospect, since we don't know the details and it hasn't happened yet, why are we trying to project into an unknown future?

There are many transit methods in San Francisco from Muni (buses and light rail), BART which is bay wide and goes under the bay to the east and south, Caltrain which goes from SF down to The South Bay, and various car transportation such as taxis and Lyft ( a great app based form of transportation.) let me know if you need additional information! ... more

Hi there,

If driving, the commutes will be bad either way. I'd say the worse traffic is from SF to South Bay though, especially in the morning. Is your boyfriend's work easily accessible by caltrain? You will be able to catch a bus to get to work in the city from caltrain, but buses aren't as easily accessible in the south bay, which might make it so he will have a hard time getting to work once he gets off the caltrain.

Because commutes will be hard either way, I would really consider where you want to live. Where do you want to be on the weekends? I am happy to help further, please feel free to contact me.

Hi Alison,

That's a tough one! All the lots tend to fleece one when looking for parking downtown. But, if I had to recommend one, I'd say the parking lot at the corner of California & Kearny is reasonable!

Mark Thomas answered:
It really depends on the time of day that you leave in both the morning and evening. From 6:00am-9:00am, it's probably about a 40 minute commute. If you're allowed to start work at 9:30 or 10:00, you'll be able to shave 10-15 minutes off that commute. Evenings are worse, and between 4:30pm-7:30pm, it's probably going to be 45-60 minutes in the evening. Before 4:30 or after 7:30, it will probably be about 15 minutes less. And if you don't have parking in the Presidio, you'll need to potentially factor in looking for parking as well.

Hope this helps.

The answer to your question comes down to personal choice. As an owner of a car in the city, you already know some of the drawbacks of having a car. Zip cars are convenient, cheap, and easy to deal with. But they can get pricey if you use them every day. ... more

BART is always faster especially from Noe. The J church meanders around before it goes underground so it is a waste of time unless you like to climb through Dolores Park.

Lance King answered:

You are probably likely to find more in the mission, and costs vary. I used to live in the Mission and I needed temporary parking for a few months while doing construction work and found one on Craigslist within a couple of days.

There are also larger parking garages that lease space by the month. As far as cost goes, generally speaking private parking will be in the $200's per month and a garage will be over $300.

I also found this parking search engine - - that seems to have a lot but I cannot vouch for its accuracy.
