BART Station Bus Tickets

Did you know that BART doesn’t run early enough to get you to The San Francisco Marathon Embarcadero Start Line*? Don’t fret! The San Francisco Marathon is offering early morning bus service from six BART stations around the Bay Area so you can focus on the race and forget the hassle of driving and finding a parking spot on race day. Plentiful free parking is available at each busing location.

Our buses will transport runners from the following BART stations on Race Morning to the Start Line of the Race at Embarcadero: Walnut Creek, El Cerrito Plaza, MacArthur, Bay Fair, Daly City, and Millbrae. Buses will arrive at the Start Line by 4:45am. After you cross the finish line, BART will be running normally. Buy a BART ticket, hop on and head home.

Bus Departure Schedule:

  • Walnut Creek: 4:10am
  • El Cerrito Plaza: 4:20am
  • MacArthur: 4:20am
  • Bay Fair: 4:05am
  • Daly City: 4:20am
  • Millbrae: 4:15am

Note: The BART Station Bus Ticket does not include return BART Ticket Fare.

*Second Half Marathon runners may use the Bart Shuttles to get to the Embarcadero Start Line  and then take the runner shuttles to the Second Half Start Line.
