Transbay Terminal
Redwood City Caltrain Station San Francisco, San Francisco International Airport, Belmont, San Carlos, Redwood City
  • Route operates as an express service (via Highway 101 and 9th/10th Streets) between San Francisco International Airport and downtown San Francisco.
  • Airport stops are in Courtyard A (one level below the arrivals level in the International Terminal), on the inner loop of the arrivals level between Terminals 1 and 2, on the inner loop of the arrivals level in front of Terminal 3, and in Courtyard G (one level below the arrivals level in the International Terminal). Passengers can access the San Francisco International Airport BART station using the Courtyard G stop.
  • Until 2013, passengers with luggage were prohibited from traveling on the express portion of the route. This policy arose from a lawsuit filed in the 1970s by a private shuttle service called San Francisco Airporter, which sued SamTrans on the grounds that SamTrans' public subsidy gave it an unfair competitive advantage. Although San Francisco Airporter was sold in 2001 and ceased operating its airport service in 2006, the luggage ban remained in place. SamTrans finally lifted the luggage ban effective June 1, 2013, after receiving clearance to do so from the Federal Transit Administration.[1]
  • San Francisco terminal is at the southwest corner of Main Street and Folsom Street, just outside the Temporary Transbay Terminal. Pick-ups are on Main Street; drop-offs are on Folsom Street.
