Presidio Go Shuttle

The Presidio Trust operates two types of free Presidio Go shuttles for your convenience; Downtown and Around the Park. The Presidio Go Downtown shuttle offers roundtrip service from the Transbay Terminal near the Embarcadero to the Presidio YMCA inside the park from 7 am to 6 pm during the week and 9:30 am to 5:30 pm on weekends. With departures approximately every 30 minutes and six different stops (including the Embarcadero BART station), the free Presidio Go Downtown shuttle is convenient to multiple neighborhoods between the Presidio and Downtown, including Chinatown and Nob Hill.

Once inside the Presidio grounds, the Presidio Go Around the Park shuttle provides free transportation in a continuous 30-minute loop from the east side of the park (Transit Center) to the west side of the park (Rob Hill Campground). The route has six different stops, including Inspiration Point (great spot for a lunch break!), and runs from 11 am to 6 pm, seven days a week.

Bike to Work
