Travel and Hotel Information for the Fluxnet Workshop

Getting to the Area by Plane

Berkeley is accessible from two main airports, San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Oakland International Airport (OAK). Several door to door shuttle and taxi services are available from both airports to bring you straight to your hotel. You can also take public transportation. The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) has connections from both airports. The David Brower Center and the Hotel Shattuck Plaza are both located very near to the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

Traveling to Berkeley by BART

The downtown Berkeley BART station is on the red and the orange lines, and is the closest station to the workshop location, the David Brower Center, and to downtown Berkeley hotels. From the San Franciso Airport, SFO, access the red line headed towards Richmond, or take the yellow line and switch to the red line at the 19th St. or MacArthur stations in Oakland. From the Oakland Airport, OAK, take the airport bus to the Coliseum/Oakland Airport station. Then take the orange line towards Richmond. Follow this link for more information on BART and specific routes from wherever you are in the Bay Area.

Traveling to Berkeley by Car

Directions to the University of California Berkeley Campus from the north, south and east, which is just adjacent to the downtown Berkeley area where the workshop will take place, can be found here.

The University of California Berkeley Campus is just east of downtown. Many restaurants, shops and other hotels can also be found locally.
