Stanford has a very walkable and bike friendly campus. It is about a 1.2 mile (2 km) walk from the Stanford housing to the workshop meeting room. Map
Stanford runs a free shuttle, the Margeurite, for its employees and campus guests with convenient drop off and pick up points near housing and the conference center:
Stanford is conveniently accessible from both the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and the San Jose Airport (SJC) via public transportation. Public transportation is about 1/10 to 1/5 the cost of a shuttle or taxi, but it is a 1.7 mile walk from the train station to the housing. From SFO use BART and Caltrain, and from SJC use VTA and Caltrain.
San Francisco International Airport (SFO), the San Jose Airport (SJC) and Oakland Aiprort (OAK) are served by private shuttle services. On Wed morning of the meeting, we will organize airport shuttle reservations to get TO THE AIRPORT. This cuts down the time to get the airport by reducing the number of stops as well as reducing the cost per person. Consequently, if you use a shuttle to get FROM the airport to Stanford, we strongly recommend booking only a one-way trip.
*Many universities have discounts with Supershuttle. Please check with Travel at your institution.
