Transportation from SFO to hotel after midnight on a weekday

Two of us will be traveling to San Francisco early December for a vacation.  Our flight will be getting in at 11:50 on Wednesday which I believe is too late to use the BART system to get to our hotel.  We are looking at an airport shuttle (Lorries or SuperShuttle) or just wing it with a taxi. We would be going to the Union Square. Which is the better option?

    I've used Super Shuttle from that airport and it got me into town without too much extra time (occasionally it feels like you are in those shared vans for hours if there are multiple stops). One thing that's nice about their shuttle service is if you have a frequent flyer rewards you can earn extra miles by using Super Shuttle. All of those miles add up so for me that's a win! Here's a link to see more about how that works.

    I always use UberX from San Francisco International Airport. It's reliable and you can see that the driver is actually on the way, and it's often cheaper than a taxi. You can also typically find a free coupon code online for your first ride. Try Lyft as well.

      +1. There are deals for all these apps for first time riders, and I know Lyft was running a Groupon a while back. · (0 likelikes)

    I just checked my Embark iBART app (which you should download for the trip to get BART schedules!) and yes, getting in at 11:50 PM is too late to ride BART as the last train out of San Francisco International Airport to the Union Square area is at 11:54 PM.

    You could look into a shuttle, but I'd personally prefer to get a Lyft, Uber, or Sidecar, especially since there are two of you. It ends up being about the same price as taking a shuttle, minus all the stops. If one of you has a smartphone, I'd download all three of those apps as they all have different availability and pricing. They'll be really useful for getting around San Francisco as well.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and I hope you have a nice vacation! :)

    Hey Carly! The best thing to do is download Uber on your phone. They can pick you up at the airport and drop you off at the hotel any time of day. If it's your first time using the app, then you will get your first ride for free. Hope this helps.

    Booking a shuttle in advance is probably the cheapest and easiest solution. Uber is a possibility or taxi. The trains definitely aren't running after midnight.

    Economically if two of you are going, get a taxi. You could do Supershuttle but you will have to factor in a min savings of $10 per person and the wait time for the shuttle to fill (maybe an hour or so). Just take the taxi. During the day, you have the option of buses and the Bart train connnected to the airport. Bart is easy if you are going downtown. I will warn you the train is pretty boring, there is not much to see as the actual city of SF is above ground out of view. Although after all this years, I learned the hard way, just take the taxi.
