Oakland to San Francisco

Hi! I'm from Brazil and i intend to go to a concert at Fox Theater in Oakland, but i'm gonna stay in SF. The concert is at 8 PM, on friday. I'm worried about coming back to SF after the concert ends, is there public transportation or do i have to get a taxi?

Thanks (and sorry if i made some grammar mistake!)

You'll pretty much have to get a taxi. What's showing? I don't see a concert this Friday at the Fox.

There's currently a BART transit strike. But if you're coming AFTER the strike ends, then you could take BART back to SF as 19th St station is a short walk away. It all depends on where you're staying and what time the concert ends.

Yes, assuming you are doing your trip when BART is up and running again, you can catch BART to SF any time before midnight.

The concert is shedule at 8PM, i think probably will end at 10PM? I don't know, concerts in the USA usually starts right on time? Because if it ends till midnight is ok to take BART, right?

The concert won't run any later than midnight. The last BART train from 19th Street back to San Francisco is well after that, so you'll be fine.

If something unexpected comes up, there is 24-hour bus service operated by AC Transit. Route NL runs during the day and evening hours, and Route 800 runs all night long. See http://www.actransit.org for more information.

Note: In order to expedite your walk between BART and the Fox, use the station's Telegraph Avenue exit. It is across the street and half a block down from the venue. Check out the station diagram at http://www.bart.gov if you're curious.
