San Jose

Affordable ideas(?) for San Jose to San Francisco commute

Anyone commute or has ever had to commute from San Jose to San Francisco? I was recently promoted and relocated to San Francisco, but I really don’t want to move away from San Jose. I like it here, but the commute is too expensive. Gas is too much, and I have no idea how the train works. Err; I need all the advice I can get.

You're in luck. Caltrain gets you to SF.

If the SF station isn't close enough to work, you can hop on the Muni.

I think you can get free transfers onto Muni when you ride Caltrain. Most public transportation providers in the area do that. Don't drive in. Too long and too expensive. Bay Area has great public transit.

Welcome to the area (and congras on the promotion!!)

You might also be able to hook up with a carpool or rideshare by signing up here: www.511.org.

Depending on which part of SJ you live in and which part of SF you work in you might also consider bus or drive to Fremont BART.
