San Francisco Frequently Asked Questions: How Do You Get to the Golden Gate Bridge?

Many questions asked at the Visitor Information Center are about a San Francisco icon, the Golden Gate Bridge. The number one question about the world's most famous bridge is: How do I get to the Golden Gate Bridge? On this week's SF FAQ, Carmina breaks it down for us.

The Golden Gate Bridge is always a mandatory stop on every visitor's itinerary (as it should be). Lucky for you, there are several ways to get to the Golden Gate Bridge. 

By Car
The bridge is easily accessible by car. If you don't have one, you can rent it from Enterprise. You can also request a car from Lyft or Uber. With these services, you can get directly dropped off at the bridge without having to look or pay for parking.

By Bus
You have two options. From Union Square, you can take the 38 bus and transfer to the 28 bus at Park Presidio. The 28 will take you all the way there. The second option is for the more adventurous types. Take the 30 bus on Kearny and Market Street all the way to the end of the line, which is the Palace of Fine Arts. From there, you can walk all the way to the bridge along Crissy Field. Learn how to use Muni.

By Tour
Many tours can take you to and across the bridge. Two great options are Big Bus and City Sightseeing, which are both hop-on/hop-off buses.

By Bike
The last way to get to the bridge is to rent a bike. Your options include Sports Basement, Blazing Saddles, Bike & View, Parkwide and Spinlister.

You can always mix and match options, which means the bridge is never far away. Stay tuned for next week's SF FAQ.
