Getting to the station

From San Francisco International Airport (SFO): From the baggage claim area, head over to the AirTrain and hop on towards the Bart/Terminal G parking stop. From there, catch the Richmond or Pittsburgh/Antioch Bart line. It’s about a 10-stop ride until you reach the Powell Street station. When you arrive, head upstairs to street level and find the 45 bus route. That’ll take you straight to the Caltrain depot. Ride the bus for 4 stops, then it’s just a quick three-minute stroll. All in all, this route should take you about an hour and 15 minutes. Alternatively, you take a Uber or Lyft, which might cut your travel time in half.

  • Gas stations near our San Francisco station

    Pease ensure the fuel tank is topped up shortly before returning your RV rental. Depending on the camper model, petrol or diesel and DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) are required. Please check in advance which fuel your camper requires. Failure to return the tanks full may result in a service fee. DEF is available at most Walmart and Target locations. These are the closest gas stations near our location:

    • The nearest gas station is located at 598 Bryant St, San Francisco, CA 94107.
