Can anyone tell me the cost of a taxi from Oakland airport to san Francisco. Thank you.
Around $50 or so, depending on where you are going in San Francisco.
Thank you for your quick response we are staying in fisherman's wharf area.
Hmmmmm, I think a cab from OAK will be a lot more than $50. That's more like what it is from SFO which is quite a bit closer. AND you can have a lot of traffic buildup heading over the Bridge depending on time of day. I've never taken a cab from OAK to SF but from what I've seen and read, it's more like $75 minimum and getting to Fisherman's Wharf will be more.
You're much better off taking BART or a shuttle.
They show 84 with a 20 percent tip which is at the higher end of the tip scale plus tolls. Plus this assume normal traffic
A cab could be as high as $100 from OAK to Fisherman's Wharf? How much luggage will you have?
So instead of taxi, consider taking BART. First you get the AirBART bus to the BART station from the airport sidewalk (see "AirBART" sign for loading area)
($3 each), and take the Richmond-bound BART train to 12th St, transfer across the platform to the San Francisco train and disembark after the tunnel ride at Embarcadero Station.
Get up to street level, find the Hyatt Regency Hotel a few steps from the Davies St exit, and take a taxi to Fisherman's Wharf from there (a few minutes' drive).
See bart.gov for their maps, fares, schedules.
I would do this if I didn't have too many traveling companions. If you had 4 or 5, consider the taxi in a minivan (MPV) configuration.
Scott - that 100 is the corona del mar special hehe.
I meant to say in my PP that it assumes not assume Normal traffic and very rarely is it normal traffic so the 100 is a good assumption
Thank you all for your help much appreciated
Hi, I am looking for help with a similar situation. We have a 9am flight on Sunday morning out of Oakland and are staying the night prior in the Mission (on balance it would have been better to book Saturday night in Oakland. oh well.) No BART before 8am Sunday. Seems like the only options are Super Shuttle boarding at 6 am or a taxi just after 7am. How much will a taxi be? Assuming we wont hit traffic at that early on a Sunday...Edited: 1:19 am, January 21, 2014
