There are several shuttle services available to take you from the San Francisco and San Jose airports to the Center/Palo Alto area. These shared van services from both airports to Stanford are approximately $25.00 one-way. (Taxi cabs charge around $65-75 for the same ride).

At San Francisco Airport (SFO):
We recommend Super Shuttle (650/558-8500). When you have collected your baggage, go up to the second floor and exit onto the center roadway. The concrete median strip curb is signed and painted for various busses and vans/shuttles, hotels, and rental cars. Look for the section where the shuttle busses line up on the median strip. Super Shuttle offers blue and yellow vans. Above the windshield there will be a banner indicating the shuttle destination. Find one that states "MID PENINSULA." There should be a Super Shuttle representative there in a blue and yellow jacket to help you. No reservation is needed from the airport. Reservations are needed if you are being picked up in Palo Alto and taken to SFO

At San Jose Airport (SJC):
We recommend South & East Bay Shuttle (408/559-9477). Reservations are needed.

Limousine Services:
Atherton Coach, 650-216-7070 phone, 650-216-9684 fax, or
Barron Limo, 408-257-7794 phone, 408-257-9960 fax
both services are used by the Center staff and guests. Fares start at $65 one-way from the airport to Palo Alto. Various additional charges apply (i.e. pick-ups after midnight and before 6:00 a.m., airport fees, multiple stops, etc.)

Rental Cars:
SFO and SJC feature all the major rental car agencies. There are also several rental car agencies with offices in Palo Alto (Hertz, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, National)
