The PresidiGo Downtown Shuttle provides a direct link between downtown San Francisco and the Presidio. It is free to the public between 9:30 am and 4 pm, Monday to Friday and weekends and holidays from 10 am to 7:30 pm.
 
Several SF MUNI routes provide service to or near the Presidio (1, 28, 28L, 29, 41, 43, and 45). Riders can use these lines to get to the park and then walk or transfer to the free PresidiGo Around the Park Shuttle to reach their final destination.
